No beer no democracy

There is an anecdote about one of our rulers, Leszek the White. The Pope wanted him to participate in a peace keeping mission in the Middle East (i.e. a crusade). Leszek told him that unfortunately we couldn't participate and bring democracy there, since there was no beer or mead in the Middle East, so the peace keeping troops would not have the drinks they got used to. I did not invent this story, you can find it even on Wikipedia ;)))
