One does not accidentally come upon beer, it must be planned and researched.........

And Moses came down from the mountain with a frosty mud and said "Let there be beer". The people rejoiced.

From http://www.beerhistory.com/library/holdings/patron_saints.shtml

"Don't drink the water, drink beer" warned Saint Arnold of Metz (b. 580 AD, d. 640), concerned about the dangers of drinking impure water. He believed that the polluted water caused illness, while the boiled and processed water used for beer was a safer alternative. According to legend he ended a plague when he submerged his crucifix into a brew kettle and persuaded people to drink only beer from that "blessed" kettle. He is reported to have said "From man's sweat and God's love, beer came into the world".

AMEN!

At that point, he tripped, splashing them with the brew, giving rise to the old toast, "Here's mud in your eye!"
