You can find them at the local pub, adding to their long-running tab, ordering “the usual”; they’re the ones you ask for drink recommendations, who are always coveted partners in a round of drinking games and whose ability to survive without even an ounce of water is legendary. We call them beer enthusiasts, for they have one motto: “Life, liberty and the pursuit of hoppiness.”
With today being International Beer Day (August 7), we’re giving cheers to some of the biggest beer lovers and legends of GoComics, counting down the top 8 comic characters we’d love to have a beer with!
Starting, of course, with Rat: debatably the biggest beer nut we know. Sign us up for the next trip to Beer Land.
We’d also like to thank Eno for reminding us of the health benefits of our favorite brew. After all, beer has hops, which are (basically) vegetables, and vegetables are good for you, so it’s like you’re drinking salad (right?).
We commend Lil on her ability to handle those awful, alcohol-induced pick-up lines.
Congratulations to Lola for remembering the importance of drinking responsibly.
Even for a comic character, life can be stressful sometimes, and Walt knows it’s best not to keep things bottled up.
The folks at Dilbert’s office make you wish you had a marketing degree.
Next there’s Adam, who has no shame in being a beer lover. Personally, we think his ringtone is awesome!
Finally, thanks to Calvin’s dad for helping us reminisce on our college days.
Cheers, and happy International Beer Day, comic fans!
