Pretty darn cool. Bach would definitely be more interesting than a pint with Beethoven

The Third? Hmm.. Maybe but probably not. I think we'd end up drinking more than just beer.

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.
Way to ruin my night JERK! Seriously though that is really sad and I am sorry to hear that. I hope that you will in fact get the chance to have those beers way down the road in a far better place then this. (not cracking on Detroit by the way. GO WINGS!!!) Thanks for sharing. Makes me want to embrace my wife and kids that much more. I guess I should probably have that beer with my dad now that I started brewing.

Meh, Tesla's mind far exceeded Edison's. That's what having a beer would be about (although, I'm sure Tesla would just criticize me the entire time). Edison was a good inventor and had a lot of applied experience but didn't have the imagination and intellect that Tesla did.

Oh absolutely. Edison was a tyrant and a sweatshop owner who routinely stole credit for the inventions of his workers, Tesla among these. That's why he would be bitching At least he got credit for alternating current.

Can't believe nobody's said this yet. I'm an atheist but my pick would be Jesus. Then I could settle that matter once and for all! If there was no such person, Mohammed would be interesting too. And how could I forget Siddhartha?! Possibly more interesting than even Jesus. There's just too many to list. Hell, I'll arrange people into categories and just just say these are...

My 3 spiritual picks:
Jesus
Siddhartha
Mohammed
...and I'm going to have to sneak Timothy Leary and maybe even Alexander Shulgin into this category!
And Lucifer. Why not? There's two sides to every story, no?

Ernest Hemingway
Vincent van Gogh
Salvador Dali

My 3 thinker picks:
Plato
Friedrich Nietzsche
Sigmund Freud

My 3 "huge balls" picks
Julius Caesar (and maybe Vercingetorix, for a WAY more intense version of Obama's Gates/Crowley "beer summit")
Genghis Khan
Joan of Arc

My 3 business picks:
Cosimo di Medici
Bill Gates
Warren Buffett


And a few "celebrity" picks for good measure:
Harry Houdini
Freddie Mercury
Maynard James Keenan
Barack Obama (DID YOU KNOW HE BREWS?!?!)

I know some of these contain more than 3 people. If you find yourself caring a bit too much about it, then YOUR list probably contains Hitler. If not, it should. Hell, I'll include him in my list. Seeing how devastated he was when the Penguins lost the first round to the Flyers, he'd definitely be an interesting drinking "buddy".

John McEnroe, just because that could get out of control quickly.

After all the usual ones, of course.
