Famed 21st-century philosopher Homer J. Simpson once queried, “Beer. Is there anything it can’t do?”
Beer is as much a part of Americana as apple pie, baseball, and hot dogs. Beer might even top the list of favorite American pastimes. When was the last time you had a slice of apple pie? Thanksgiving? When was the last time you had a beer? There’s probably a pilsner currently warming in your hand right now, considering the average adult consumes about 10 ounces of beer per day.
While Homer is correct, the possibilities of beer are endless, but we do know one thing for sure — adding beer usually makes for a pretty good movie.
