Icon24 Lincoln believes in the people

Comment: Did Abe Lincoln really say the following?

"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth they can be
depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring
them the real facts, and beer."

I've seen it online with and without "and beer" and was wondering if the
quotehad been embellished for humors sake.
