It's bound to be an old joke, but I stumbled across it for the first time the other day, and was so taken by it that I had to spread it further.

2022-06-12 Rerun commentary: It's not known for certain if Newtown had much to do with alcohol, but given that water was a generally unsafe drink at the time and there weren't many other options, most people imbibed alcohol.

Given his propensity to experiment on himself, I like to think that Newton had some rollicking good drunken times.
