Beer was prescribed by physicians to ameliorate certain forms of tremor back in the day.

Beer does have interesting physiological effects. I read an abstract that described the stimulating effect of beer on gastrointestinal motility, the implication being that one can of cheap beer is less expensive than Miralax. The dopaminergic effect might explain why certain forms of tremor decrease w/administration of beer.

American colonists were forbidden to drink more than half a gallon of beer at breakfast.

I like good scotch, too. Also love martinis. But, being retired, I have a lot of time to drink.

Can’t seem to drink scotch, or martinis, for 6 hours. Too much dopamine?

What can I say? Beer is proof that God loves us.

I literally get sick without it — headaches, fatigue.

Ah, an addict experiencing withdrawal symptoms. The body speaks! Give me caffeine!
