Beer is Better than Wine

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch http://www.timesdispatch.com/

10 reasons beer is better than wine

10. Beer doesn’t rely on a piece of wood to give it character.

9. The French don’t set the standard for beer-making and food-pairing.

8. Beer is richer, better looking and has a better body.

7. The twist-off cap. Wine makers are just starting to figure that one out.

6. Beer doesn’t need a movie about two losers (“Sideways”) to increase its popularity.

5. Beer never has a “bad year.”

4. An old English beer-drinking song inspired the melody for “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Wine coolers inspire Britney Spears.

3. No phony pseudo-sophisticated snobby elitist names starting with “chateau.”

2. Beer is so cool we use it to describe ourselves. We want six-pack abs, not magnum thighs.

And the No. 1 reason beer is better than wine:

1. The Mayflower was loaded with beer, not wine. So was Ben Franklin when he discovered electricity.
