CONTEMPORARY MUSLIM REFLECTIONS ON THE BREADTH OF LIFE
There is nothing to beer but beer itself.
I think you underestimate beer’s capacity (or that of any alcohol at all), when not used as a crutch or a safety net or an escape from the world, to unite people and spark that little forgoten dynamic which reenergizes humanity and allows it to flourish: conversation. That is of course not to say that conversation necessitates beer. Nor that there is nothing to beer but beer itself. But rather that when not used to warp reality, alcohol can enliven and enhance reality and foster discourse. Then again perhaps it is like many other things: a self-fulfilling prophecy. In that case, however, you could replace the word beer with any other thing in the cosmos and it would fit.
