Charlie Mopps o Charlie Mops è il personaggio inventato al quale è attribuita l’invenzione della birra in una canzone folk irlandese, Beer, Beer, Beer. Il nome è stato probabilmente stato creato per fare rima con i termini inglesi barley e hops, ingerdienti principali della birra.
La canzone si diffuse sulle navi della Royal Navy, e quindi in diversi paesi come l’Inghilterra, l’Australia e gli Stati Uniti.
Dal 1950 son state scritte diverse versioni di questa canzone, come quella di Clancy Brothers e quella dei Brobdingnagian Bards.
La canzone viene cantata anche da tre ubriachi nel gioco The Bard’s Tale (2004).

A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he’s filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Curtis bar, the James’ Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well
one thing you can be sure of, its Charlie’s beer they sell
so all ye lads a lasses at eleven O’clock ye stop
for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops 1 2 3 4 5

A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
the kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
