Awesome age verification page!

Many beer websites are equipped with an age verification page, designed to filter out those who are not of legal drinking age.  Some are a bit tedious, asking you to fill out a form or select your age from drop-down menus.  Others simply ask you to click a box that states that you are over the age of 21.  They can be annoying, but are a legal necessity.  Lagunitas Brewing Co. decided to have a bit of fun with theirs, which includes the following welcome message.

"Welcome to the Lagunitas Brewing Company...

It's not important for us to know exactly how you arrived here, but it is important for both of us to acknowledge that you ARE here... Acceptance is always the first step.

Many souls have arrived here at the end of arduous and sometimes difficult journeys and we want you to know that you are welcomed and that we will always be here for you. Your complimentary blanket and bowl of soup will be along in a moment.

So, it is in a genuine spirit of mindful compassion that we will share this time. You are good, you are beautiful, and you are a sentient being on the planet Earth. You may or you may not have lint in your navel.

Therefore make peace with your God, whatever you conceive him to be; Cosmic Muffin or Hairy Thunderer, and take solace in the knowledge that your dog is finally getting enough bacon.
