"Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."~Benjamin Franklin

It is doubtful he said it and there is no citation available.

Ha ha, yeah, I agree, I doubt Franklin said that back in the 1700's.

Franklin used to frequent the pubs, so it is possible he said something along those lines. Time to move to another state! :D
