    I am pretty sure we are missing something culturally by being (mostly) British, I assume that It we asked any self respecting German or Austrian beer lover they would be able to recite from memory a long list of beer related songs...I pity our lost heritage !

    Listen to them on Youtube. They're, for the most part, drunken, bawdy, great-to-be-with-lads-and-having-a-great-time-on-a-friday-night dinking songs- in whatever language or culture. Café-culture sipping is not the same as the horn-clashing romp of party night in Valhalla. It all depends on what you think beer's for.

    Thanks.

    How do you do it, Stanley?
    Well, It's Tankard that helps me excel. After one I do everything well.

    Agreed, so everyone should learn the following. As for the tune, there is an excellent version (with appropriate photos) on YouTube.

    A long time ago, way back in history,
    When all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
    Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
    and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

    Chorus

    He must have been an Admiral a Sultan or a King,
    And to his praises we shall always sing.
    Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
    Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented Beer Beer Beer,
    tiddly Beer Beer Beer . . .


    The Curtis bar, the James' Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well,
    One thing you can be sure of, its Charlie's beer they sell,
    So all ye lads a lasses, at eleven O'clock ye stop,
    For five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops. 1, 2 , 3 4 5

    Chorus

    A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
    The kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
    40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
    Its only eight pence ha’penny (3.5p), and one and six (7.5p) in tax! 1, 2, 3 4 5

    Final Chorus.

    Excellent song. Just found it on YouTube. I'd never heard it. Reminds me of the Dubliners (not necessarily a good thing, but it's a great song). Thanks for the tip. Here it is:

    We used to sing this in a folk club years ago - ah! the happy days of my youth!

    It is of good ale to you I’ll sing,
    And to good ale I’ll always cling.
    I like my mug filled to the brim
    And I’ll drink all you’d like to bring.

    Chorus (after each verse):
    Oh Good Ale, thou art my darling,
    Thou art my joy both night and morning.


    It is you that helps me with my work,
    And from a task I’ll never shirk
    While I can get a good home brew;
    And better than one pint, I like two.

    I love you in the early morn,
    I love you in daylight, dark, or dawn.
    And when I’m weary, worn, or spent
    I’ll turn the tap and ease the vent.

    It is you that makes my friends my foes,
    It is you that makes me wear old clothes.
    But since you come so near my nose
    It’s up you comes and down you goes.

    And if all my friends from Adam’s race
    Was to meet me here all in this place,
    I could part from all without one fear
    Before I’d part from my good beer.

    *And if my wife should me despise,
    *How soon I’d give her two black eyes.
    But if she loved me as I love thee,
    What a happy couple we should be.

    You have caused me debts and I’ve often swore
    I never would drink strong ale anymore.
    But you, for all that, I’ll forgive
    And I’ll drink strong ale as long as I live.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the comment An Ankoù. Listening to anything on Youtube is out of the question because the sound card in my computer departed this life a couple of years ago and I’m not going to replace it because within the next year or so I’m going to treat myself to a new computer. However, I understand your general message. For me, beer is for relaxing and conviviality.

    Just thinking of the folk clubs we used to go to late 60's and early 70's.
    Anybody here go to The Barge in York. I think it eventually sank. s**t pint of Tartan, but great folk nights on a Saturday?
    Seven drunken nights - The Dubliners
    Drunken sailor - Trad.
    Whisky in the jar - Trad.
    Beers for souvenirs - Ken Dod
    Wild rover - Trad.
    Show me the way to go home - Trad.
    etc. etc. etc...........................

    On the folk front.
    All for me grog
    Whiskey your the devil
    Jug of punch
    Drink up thy cider
    Finnegans wake
    The real old mountain dew
    The moonshiner.
