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.
that's an easy one for me-Jesus!

Adam and Eve (as in the first homo-sapient)
What meeting of minds to observe
Then I'd know who he was
Numerous departed family and friends
Paternal grandparents who I never knew
Maternal grandparents who I knew and adored
My two best mates who were killed when an ambulance hit the car they were in
My great grandmother who I had till I was 14 (just for one last hug)
My great Aunty who suffered with CP, couldn't walk, barely talk, but a wicked sense of humour and most of all because she loved a beer and it would let her have one last one.

There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.
