If you could share a pint with anyone, who would it be?
This question was asked of me so I thought I'd pass it along. Living or dead, famous or not, who would you choose to sit down and have a pint with?

There are a bunch of names that come to mind for me. Ernest Hemmingway, Frank Sinatra, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, all would be interesting I think.

However, I would choose my own Grandfather. He died when I was 9 yrs old so my only memories are those through a child's eyes. I would love to sit down as adults and share a homebrew instead of the root beer we once did.

So how bout it, Who do you Choose!

My family tree ends with a bank robber who had a billion different aliases. I'd like to know his real family name so the tree can be traced further. And hear some robbery stories :mug:

My boys, but that can wait another 15 years until the youngest is at least 18.

My grandfather as well. My mom says I am like him in a lot of ways and he died when I was too young to know him. Course he would probably want a buckhorn beer. Luckily I didn't inherit his tastebuds.

I'd like to have a nice, long talk about religion and government with Thomas Jefferson. That man put together his own bible and wrote the Declaration of Independence, I can only imagine what he'd have to say about those subjects and more.

We might need more than a pint.

Well here in my family, we got a sip or two of beer in our teen years so we would not go crazy drunk the minute we turned 18. :ban:

Other than my grandfather who passed away when my dad was 14...George Harrison.
The Beatles are one of the greatest rock and roll bands ever, and while Paul and John captured the spotlight, George was the guiding spirit behind it all. Musician aside, George Harrison was an amazing human being. Gentle, kind, spiritual, deep, and full of wisdom. He'd be my pick

I would like to have one more with my dad.

The president....I hear he brews. ;)

Seriously though I'd love to share my beer with both my late Father who died 7 years ago, shortly before I started brewing, and my brother who died 16 years before (he was 16 years older than me), and his death was the reason I didn't start brewing back then.

16 years ago, before he was taken from cancer he and I were looking at starting what would have been the 3rd Micro Brewery to open in Metro Detroit. He was a commercial developer, and was working on a major development that would have included a Spanish Restaurant and a Micro Brewery. At that time I was reading as much as I could about brewing, and was going to start homebrewing.

In fact a couple days before Christmas I was heading out to try to find what was then the only homebrewshop in the area, which was in a hardware store (It would later become Cap and Cork for any Metro Detroiters reading this,) to buy my starter kit. I couldn't find the place (before gps and cellphones lol) and planned to go try to find it again while I was off the week between Christmas and New Years.....

Two days later, Christmas Eve morning, I got a call from my sister in law that he was dying. I got there just after he drew his last breath....and I never made it to the brewshop until 8 years later, the day after Christmas, about a month after my dad died....

So yeah, I'd really like to share my beers with them.
