Getting older? Drink some beer for your mental health!

From The Opinionated Beer Page:

An 18-year study by the National Institute on Aging found that 50-plus men who consumed a drink a day during middle age scored significantly better on cognitive tests later in life than did non-drinkers.

The only thing we have to fear…

From The Beer Machine:

Cenosillicaphobia is the fear of an empty glass

Who knew there was a medical term for my condition?!

Cenosillicaphobes Unite!!!

I’m going on an all-beer diet!

From Beer Church:

12 oz of a typical American pale lager actually has fewer calories than 2 percent milk or apple juice.

Coming soon: Samuel Adams Winter Welcome, now with added calcium and vitamin D!

What a way to go!

From The Opinionated Beer Page:

On October 17 of 1814, a rupture in a brewery tank containing 3,500 barrels of beer caused a flood of fatal proportions in the London parish of St. Giles. The wave of beer swept victims off their feet, dashed them against walls, and buried them under debris. Two houses were demolished in the sea of beer suddenly loosed upon town, and nine people lost their lives in the flood of suds.

I now know how I want to die

Now that’s what I call alcohol abuse!

From my little desktop calendar: 365 Bottles of Beer for the Year:

When it went out of business in 1964, Louisville’s Fehr Brewing Company had enough beer on hand to fill 2.25 million bottles. Prohibited from selling it in bulk, and unable to bottle it, the brewery dumped its liquid assets into the city’s sewer system.

And I bet the rats had one heck of a hangover the next day!
