Who Would You Drink With?

The other day someone asked me if you could sit down and drink a beer with anyone alive or dead who would it be? It was a simple enough question but without a simple enough answer. One of the most important beers I have ever had was the first one I had with my dad. Hell, I remember the first beer that I ever had period. I was a sophomore in high school in Camp Lejeune, NC and it was a Colt 45 40oz with one of my best friends Randy Lenard. But I assume the question implied famous. No one wants to hear the sappy beer sharing stories.

I really started to think about this one. It can really have some fun answers. I decided it would be fun to come up with my top 10 famous people(dead or alive) that I would like to share a beer with. So in no particular order is my top 10.

1) Barack Obama- He is a sitting President. Like his politics or not it would be awesome. And most likely homebrewed.

2) Clint Eastwood- The man is a legend. Need I say more?

3) Steve McQueen- One of the coolest actors ever.

4) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin- How cool would it be to sit and listen to these guys talk over some beers?

5) Elvis Presley- I can just imagine the kind of experience this would be. Beer, guns and pain pills. Whoa.

6) Hall & Oates- For me this would be epic.

7) Hope Solo- Ah, Hope Solo. I love you. That is all.

8) Kurt Russell- One of my all time favorite actors.

9) Harrison Ford- Drinking beer with Indiana Jones and Han Solo himself? Count me in.

10) Matthew Mcconaughey- My man crush is on this dude. He seems like a cool dude to drink a beer with.

Well, that's it. Who is on your list? I would love to hear so leave them in the comment section!

Kurt Russell is awesome! Big Trouble in Little China ;) I think I would like to drink a beer with Janis Joplin...though she'd probably prefer Southern Comfort!

Thomas Jefferson would be awesome though :)

I totally agree with #1, #4, and #10.

Then to say that I have completed #8 when I was out snowboarding in Aspen a few years ago. We grabbed a few beers at the bottom of the mountain at the end of each day. Well, two days in a row we happen to sit at the table right next to Kurt Russell. After about 20 minutes of deciding what to do, we just pulled up a chair and finished our beers while chit-chatting with him and Don Logue. Definitely a cool experience...
