“Beer…because you can’t drink bacon”

"Beer...because you can’t drink bacon” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “Beer was invented because you can’t drink bacon” was posted on Twitter by Steve on August 3, 2013. “#beer - because you can’t drink #bacon” was posted on Twitter by J. Brownstone on October 17, 2013. The saying probably comes from an image.
