"In America, the drunkard is no patron of the brewer; he is not willing to distend his stomach, lose his time, pay five times as much to get intoxicated, as he must, if he uses beer instead of ardent spirits.”

------- Lancelot Fidler, Albany, NY brewer, 1836

(A contemporary and one-time partner of famed ale brewer, Peter Ballantine, in the Albany brewing firm of Fidler, Ryckman & Co.).
