Beer is Proof that God Loves Us and Wants Us to be Happy

Courtesy of a friend I have a tee-shirt with these wise words of Ben Franklin. Of course I have also seen the same saying with wine instead of beer which just proves that Ben covered all the bases. In any case via a GetReligion article about beer and beer-brewing monks I found the delightful website of the Lost Abbey Brewery in San Marcos, CA. Very amusing. I will have to see if I can find their beer. Here are their ten commandments:
1. The most imaginative beers are our crusade
2. We believe we are all in this together
3. We strive for honesty and integrity in our lives like you
4. Fresh beer is great, aged beer is better
5. Now that you have found us help us spread the message
6. There is good and evil in the world - our beers are good
7. Passion isn't something you can buy at the corner store
8. We believe an inspired life is worth living
9. Life is about choices, The Lost Abbey is a great choice
10. We are not perfect, but no one is
