Reading Mash ~ Ambitious Brew: The Story of American Beer

I'm almost done with the book, and then it is onto Naked Pint. In the meantime, I must share my favorite line from the book which is actually a quote from Miss Mae West herself on the night of Prohibition's repeal. After slamming a mug of brew down in a celebratory drinking contest with Gary Cooper (both Miss West and Mr. Cooper were renowned drinkers, to say the least), Mae West commented to the cameraman filming the joyous fiasco:

"Now that beer is really back and we will all be drinking it why not wage a campaign for the return of the woman's natural figure?" ... "We haven't had any perfectly natural figures since the war took beer away from us."

Amen, hallelujah, and peanut butter, Miss Mae West.
To the woman's natural figure, Cheers! This one is on me.
