Beer Philosophy

November 2nd, 2007 · No Comments

The Philadelphia Daily news is running a piece on Beer Philosophy If you have a limited amount of money should you drink more cheap beer or less of the more expensive but better quality beer? They go on to quote John Stuart Mill a 19th Century British philosopher and formulator of the “greatest happiness” principle.

Mill believed it was mankind’s duty to increase the amount of pleasure in the world – a theory known as utilitarianism. “He thought a better life was one spent enjoying a few pints of excellent ale,” writes Hales, “not one chugging kegs of fraternity-grade lager.”

Personally I will always go for good quality beer, not always the most expensive beer.
