#1 Ben Franklin: "Beer is proof that God loves us and likes to see us happy."

#2 Now, this is some scientific "consensus" I can get behind.

#5 #3 - my Dad was a chemical engineer and told me there are wheat beers, corn beers, and maybe others I have forgotten. Bud gives me a headache; other beers do not. Try another brand, Gorb!

#9 The combination of hordenine and alcohol is most likely to blame for the fact that beer makes people feel good, according to researcher Monika Pischetsrieder.

#10 Tap beer gives a headache...try a bottle, Gorb. It's a mood lifter--trainers even give it to racehorses!

#11 When I was in college we had to sign up for some stupid studies as part of our grade. I remember one was hypnotism (didn't work for me).

Turns out I was doing intensive studies on beer effects without getting any credit.

#12 I fell into a vicious cycle in Ewetah when I could only buy beer from the State. I started a homebrew kit and had the most fun. A 5gal bucket fills about 24-12oz bottles. Two weeks for the bucket to brew and two weeks after bottling to settle. Three years, 5-6.7%, no hangover.

#13 Mass-market "American style" beers use rice to boost the alcohol and sugar content. There's enough it tastes like sake to me.

So try a craft brew or an import. Or try cider.

#15 @12 Yah, the old 3# Blue Ribbon, 5# cane sugar, 5 gal water, baker's yeast. My friend Tony got some vicious hangovers and finally pinned it down to the water being run-off from the sheep pasture. Good times!
