It would have been just any mundane clash of civilizations with points thrown and missed until a Mad Hatter in the form of the gregarious Tea Partier appears in the thick of the stand off between Occupiers and Conservatives and says - hey stop shouting at each other - you got at least 60% in common - so lets have some beers (many beers) and discuss this. And so began the Beer Summit an initiative between possibly the minuteman wing of the Tea Party - attendees at the CPAC and some of the Occupiers who came to protest CPAC.

Over drinks, foot soldiers of the left and right explore what they agree on: more than you'd think BY JEFFERSON MORLEY
The Free Republic web site has a fascinating thread from some of the Tea Party members who initiated and participated in this Beer Summit.
A blog by Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) provides good insights.
"The Tea Partiers feel the tail of the elephant and say the problem is this little thing that feels like a rope. The Occupiers are on the other end feeling the trunk and saying the problem is this big long thing that feels like a snake. They are feeling different parts of the same beast, but so far haven't talked enough to each other to figure that out. " There are may more plus a partial transcript of the conversations. See "CPAC-Occupy Beer Summit -- It's a Start"
The Minuteman Project's story "Minutemen, Occupiers And Tea Partiers Share Drinks At CPAC"
"The strange cocktail hour began after Mr. Gilchrist led some of his fellow of conservative conference-goers to visit the Occupiers protesting CPAC outside the hotel" concludes with this """Build a bridge and you'd be amazed at how their grievances are the same as our grievances," Mr. Gilchrist said.""
