Default If You Could Have a Beer with Anyone in History Who Would It Be?

I thought this might be an interesting idea for a thread. Of course you are free to choose anyone you wish but I would try to keep in mind the beer aspect of it. There are people in history that I admire but they might not be my first choice for a pub companion.

With that in mind, my choice would be Mark Twain.

It would be Jon Smyth and Ben Holm. Maybe add David Orsam to round everything out.

I 'm simply not a beer drinker, but would love a glass of wine with Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, c.d, and Caz.

With all those quotes? I wouldn't want to be saying "Heard it!" all night

Two of my great passions are science and music, and I really like the idea of getting two people together from the same field, but of two widely different eras, just to see what would happen. From the world of music, I think I'd pick Mozart and Frank Zappa; from the world of science, Isaac Newton and Richard Feynman.

I would share a pot of tea with Oliver Hardy, and I would have Mozart playing pub piano.

You always end up missing someone out!

For me there's a few:

Arthur Conan Doyle - obviously I'm a massive Holmes fan
Jeremy Brett - finest Holmes ever.
Laurel & Hardy - sorry I'd be greedy and want both.
Muhammad Ali - sporting hero.
Donald Trump - because he'd be within punching range.
Billy Connolly - genius.
Churchill - not perfect but a remarkable man.
My grandad - because I miss him.

Billy Connolly is probably my favourite comedian, but he's the only one I know who literally makes my ribs ache with laughter. I wouldn't want to spend an evening in pain

That's a good point Sam. You'd probably spend the entire meal choking and spitting food everywhere!
I have to say that I also love Eric Morecambe. Have done since I was a kid.

Hello Pat,

Well I have to say that I am flattered. I am going to assume that you...uh...would be buying?
