You’re smarter if you drink beer. Really though?

I read this the other day and while I would love to think it’s true, I think I should consult the experts.

A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the rear that are killed. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole because only the fittest survive thus improving the general health and speed of the entire herd.
In much the same way the human brain only operates as quickly as the slowest of it’s brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells, as we all know, and naturally the alcohol attacks the slowest weakest cells first….
So it is as plain as the nose on your face that regular consumption of Guinness will eliminate the weaker, slower brain cells thus leaving the remaining cells the best in the brain.
The end result, of course, is a faster more efficient brain.
If you doubt this at all, tell me, isn’t it true that we always feel a bit smarter after a few pints

So what do you guys think?

  1. I think it’s a humorous statement, of course. I also do not believe alcohol kills brain cells. Lol. Alcohol interferes with the brain’s ability to make memories, but does not kill brain cells.

    Still, all this thinking about beer is making me want one. Have you tried Sam Adams Alpine Spring? It really is a stellar light-bodied beer. You’ll like it.

  2. You got to kill off those weak lazy brain cells to make room for the new fancy cells some how. Too bad Ale Evangelist is right, a beer doesn’t actually kill off brain cells. Although, excessive alcohol will cause a nice case of permanent memory loss.

    I bought the Sam Adams Brewers pack from CostCo a week or two ago, and the Alpine spring was in it. Its a pretty tasty beer. I also like their new oak aged beer. Much more mellower of an oak aged beer, than the whiskey-clones I get from so many oak aged beers.

Pull up a stool and join the conversation!
