Something We've Known All Along...

Thanks to JAMES TARANTO in today's Best of the Web for pointing THIS out:
A pint of beer or a glass of wine triggers the growth of new brain cells and boosts memory, scientists say. . . . The growth of new neurons could improve memory and learning, said Prof Stefan Brene, who carried out the research at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. . . .

The findings did not surprise members of the Campaign for Real Ale. "It is well known that alcohol in moderation is good for your body so it's no surprise it's also good for your mind," said a spokeswoman. "Maybe that is why lots of pub quiz teams are so bright."

The Ultimate Beer Bong?

What exactly does THIS do?

B to the E

"B to the E" is Budweiser's new energy drink/beer hybrid. It tastes like a combination of Bud and Red Bull. At $2.00 a 10oz can, I will stick to real beer. I must give Bud credit for the marketing ploy though. In stead of being a passed out drunk, you are a wide awake drunk that is able to order more beer. Clever.

Hometown brew

I went home to Leavenworth for a few days. While I was tehre, I decided to sample some of the brew from "High Noon Saloon," a micro brewery in LV. "High Noon Apricot Wheat" was an interesting beer with, as the name states, fruity overtones. Reminded me of "B to the E" (Bud's new energy beer). River City Pale Ale was reasonably full bodied, smooth, and has added to my new-found fondness for Ale.
