I'm wondering what kind of responses you'll get on this one! Both sides of my family descend from German farmers with a fondness for beer with an emphasis on moderation. As I was growing up my parents always split a beer on pizza nights ... and Dad often let us kids have a sip of his beer. While I don't condone giving alcoholic beverages to children in general, looking back, I think my Dad was smart. I grew up with an appreciation for beer in a healthy context. These days I've come to prefer wine. But, like my folks, I enjoy it with favorite foods on special nights.

Sounds like your family had a very practical and reasonable approach to alcohol, Brenda. I would agree: Your Dad was a smart man.
