Sunday marks the National Beer Day not an official holiday in the U.S. but surely a time to grab glasses of one's favorite alcoholic beverage and let loose with friends and family.

Beer is made from four basic ingredients: Barley, water, hops and yeast. And did you know the oldest, still-operating brewery in the United States is the Yuengling brewery in Pottsville, Pennsylvania? Here are a few quotes from famous beer-lovers to make the day more special, courtesy, Brainy Quote and Food 24:
