The fabricated Franklin quote said, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” According to blogger Barry Popik’s website, it first made the rounds as early as 1997 or 1998. That process took us more than two centuries back in time.

Needless to say, Benjamin Franklin was successful in his job at the London printing house, as he was with pretty much everything else in his life. So if you want to take away a little beer wisdom from the great man, don’t drink beer at work; drink water instead. So, it seems quite likely that a few understandable mistakes led to many people deciding to misquote Franklin.

QUC11 – BEER IS PROOF

In sum, the quote mentioning beer that was attributed to Franklin looked to have been spun out of a genuine letter that was about God, wine, and being happy. While it’s true that Franklin said this about wine, we rated the claim as “False” that he said the same about beer. No record confirms this, and it’s likely that the quote simply became popular because it kind of sounded cool.

The quote has been shared so far and wide that even Anheuser-Busch shared it in 2006, in its press release for the company’s 300th anniversary. Writer Dale Carnegie wrote this witticism in his 1936 best-seller How to Win Friends and Influence People. It follows a quote https://turbo-tax.org/ from Franklin, hence the attribution confusion. This statement, referring to the importance of libraries, did not come from Franklin himself. It was part of biographical piece written by Henry Stuber and printed in the 1793 edition of Franklin’s autobiography.

Meanwhile, Anchor Brewing — an ipso facto founding father of the modern craft beer movement —attempted to debunk this oft-quoted “beer is proof” myth in 2012. The writers admit that the sentiment of the quote is one with which we all agree, but that’s as far as it goes. It is still unknown who started this rumor, or when his words got twisted since it it so hard to trace the roots to a rumor that started so long ago. However, according to beer.about.com/od/historyofbeer, the rumor may have spread so broadly because so many people commonly use the quote, and after hearing it so often, it is automatically is believed to be true. Also, since Franklin is known to have a satirical side to him, it would not be preposterous to believe that he may have said such a thing. However, today the false quote is still printed on-shirts all around the world.
