National Drink Beer Day is celebrated Sept. 28 for people to appreciate and enjoy one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world.

While some people celebrate this day by gathering with friends and enjoying different varieties of the drink, others prefer being at their home, relishing the beverage. Many breweries across the country also offer deals and tastings.

Here are a few famous quotes about the alcoholic drink, courtesy Food24:

1. “Whoever drinks beer, he is quick to sleep; whoever sleeps long, does not sin; whoever does not sin, enters Heaven! Thus, let us drink beer!” - Martin Luther

2. Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that’s a tough call. That’s rebellion.” – Alice Cooper

5. “Beer, if drunk in moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health,”- Thomas Jefferson

6. "Beer, it's the best damn drink in the world."- Jack Nicholson

7. "The beer tastes good to my throat, cold and bitter, and the three boys and the beer and the queer freeness of the situation makes me feel like laughing forever. So I laugh, and my lipstick leaves a red stain like a bloody crescent moon on top of the beer can.

8. “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Benjamin Franklin

9. “Beer makes you feel the way you ought to feel without beer.” Henry Lawson
