Light Beer Inventor Has Left the Building

Christmas was a little less festive this year for light beer drinkers everywhere. Before the un-sober holidays, the inventor of light beer, Mr. Joe Owades, passed away. Some would say this man had a monumental contribution to society. I, on the other hand, would say that the words "beer" and "light" shouldn't be used in the same sentence. Thanks to drinking buddy Peter for bringing this important story to my attention, and for never drinking light beer.

This is very sad. But, really, I think light beer must have been invented long before this guy came along. Its origins can likely be traced to the first time someone had an ice cube melt in a brew. After all, that is what light beer is, right? Just watered down good stuff.
