“Don’t worry, be hoppy” (beer saying)

"Don’t worry, be hoppy”—a drinking pun on “Don’t worry, be happy”—is a saying that has been printed on many images. A drink containing hops is “hoppy.” “Don’t worry- be hoppy” was posted on the newsgroup rec.crafts.brewing on June 18, 1992.

Other beer/wine sayings inspired by song lyrics include “Don’t worry, beer happy,” “Don’t worry, beer hoppy,” “Do you know the way to Chardonnay” and “Love the wine you’re with.”


Wikipedia: Don’t Worry, Be Happy
“Don’t Worry, Be Happy” is a popular worldwide hit song by American musician Bobby McFerrin. Released in September 1988, it became the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a position it held for two weeks.
