Also:
Suddenly this summer — and about darn time — it's raining beer in South Florida. Real beer. Wheat brews and porters and fruit beers quite hale. Ales that are red, amber, nut-brown and pale. Stouts made of oatmeal that please without fail.
As you can see, sheer poetry.
I'm not talking wimpy Budweisers or Millers or Coorses. Know what real beer drinkers call them ? Lawn-mower beers — the only time they're palatable is when they're chilled to one degree short of beersicle and you've just come in sweating from cutting the grass.
— Fred Tasker, "It's pouring beer in South Florida," The Miami Herald, June 15, 1995
