“HOW MUCH BEER IS IN GERMAN INTELLIGENCE?” – FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE
By Mitchell Wilburn
How did I choose this beer? Well, in an aisle full of dragons and dogs and clowns and whatever else people put on their bottles these days, there was one that didn’t quite fit the mold. It instead was blazened with the face of 1800s German philosopher Friedrick Nietzsche, captioned with the beer’s name, “Existent”. His mustachioed visage reminded me that I have a philosophy major girlfriend at home, and this could be a fun treat for the both of us. She is more of a Jean-Paul Sartre fan, but I didn’t see any bottles with him on it. However, I suppose I could have made a Sartre beer by watering down the Nietzsche. I’ll just go ahead and high-five myself for that wicked philosophy burn.
