A brief and hopefully "fair use" quote from

http://www.falstaffbrewing.com/interest.htm

"1903 - Lemp Brewing registers the Falstaff trademark & logo. Lemp
thought the Shakespearean character of Sir John Falstaff represented the
more positive social aspects of drinking, rather than the destructive
consequences of over consumption emphasized by prohibitionists. Sir John
was a 'man's man' who's philosophy was to 'eat drink & be merry'
(nothing wrong with that!) and his sense of good fun was tempered by an
exceptional intellect (kind of like your 'webguy'J). According to the
company's profile, Sir John was beset by no frustrations, fears, or
problems of protocol. "
