Crucial beer news via Quartz:

Researchers at Oregon State University discovered that doses of xanthohumol, a flavonoid found in hops, improved memory and thinking in a lucky group of mice.

Hops are used to make beer. Will drinking beer therefore make you smarter?

… it would require drinking 2,000 liters of beer a day (or 5,636 bottles of beer) to ingest the amount of xanthohumol used in the study.

Sounds like an emphatic “yes.” What time is it right now, like 1:30? 1:30 is beer-30 (is IQ-30).
