Besides the benefits against colds, beer's "been shown to increase bone density and reduce risk of heart disease, Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. Protein in hops will even make your hair and skin shinier."

That's why I like the Blue Pants Brewery. Less chance of dementia.

Why then do I ALWAYS lose my pants when I drink too much of it?

My dad used to come home every night, drink beer and beat the shiat out of me and my mom.

But it's all good because he was curing the common cold.

This is why I prefer weed. No hangover..

That being said, I am headed to Four Peaks Brewery on Friday for a little medicinal beer.

In fact, it's how we get a lot of children. On the other hand, it also gets rid of a lot of adults, especially.

Unfortunately, a single can of beer doesn't contain enough humulone to make a difference, Jun Fuchimoto, a researcher for Sapporo, told AFP. You'd need to drink 30 12-oz. cans of beer in order for there to be any effect

Yup, repeat. But has it been pointed out that dogs enjoy the benefits of beer, too?

Funny. I heard an infomercial on the radio late night the other day talking about this stuff, and apparently some company is making a pill with the 30-can's worth distilled down into a vitamin.

To crush your beer cans, see them piled before you, and hear the lamentations of their brewers!

30 12 oz cans is just over 16 22 oz cans for those in a hurry to cure their cold. Child's play.

Ugh. Whiskey is instant heartburn for me. And I generally don't like hop bombs, I like to taste my malts.

But hey, maybe I'll drink a few dozen IPAs the next time I get a cold.

That's about as much fun as weed pills without the high. I'd rather just deal with the cold.

You know, we're having a little party in my office in 5 minutes with cake and all... but all I want to do is go home and work on keeping Alzheimer's away.

The alarming number of people in this thread that somehow forgot that this article was already posted is likely proof that you all are developing Alzheimer's and need to drink more beer.

Read up on the history of beer consumption in the western world. Everybody from kids on up drank nothing but beer instead of water until the mid 1800's. It's a wonder we've progressed this far...
