Beat the Flu with a Brew!

A new study conducted by the people at Sapporo Medical University points to a key ingredient in beer being a cold fighter. This magical substance happens to be HOPS and the humulone that is inside it. Unfortunately(or fortunately) you have to consume 30 beers to ingest enough humulone to make a difference. Consumerist.com has more on the story. In case anyone was interested my new cold regiment is 15 frosty Guinness, 5 Arrogant Bastards, 5 120 Minute IPA and 5 Maximus IPA that should beat any cold into a drunken submission…

Humulone
