- The Beaker People: a Neolithic culture distinguished by their pottery drinking vessels, said to be for the consumption of alcohol. In other words, they brought brewing to Western Europe and Great Britain. Things have never been the same since!
- Libation: the ritual pouring out of a liquid offering to a god.
- BPLF: an organization–more or less–founded in the 1960s by science fiction fan Brian Burley to promote the production and consumption of beer. It’s time to revive this noble cause, as we pour our liquid offerings, with the New Beaker People’s Libation Front!
