I can attest to the fact that beer doesn't convey a similar benefit. Dang.

Waiter, please bring me a cask of your cheapest red.
Sir, would prefer a glass of our finest!
No! I'm only using it for medicinal purposes.

I'm reminded of another study reported by THE ONION that said women who drink red wine are 70% more likely to tell their mother-in-law what they really think of her. Ongoing studies were in the works to test vodka and rum.

Last week, a study claimed a glass of wine was bad for you. Now, it's healthy to guzzle red wine by the bottle to fight Covid so you can live long enough to see what the next flu virus mutation will require. I, for one, am hoping for beer to be the next lifesaving beverage of choice.

Even if one still gets the Covid, you'll only have a mild case of drunkeness, and a greatly lowered chance of it's being fatal.

Will the government give billions to the Gallo Brothers to ramp up production ?

Le Pet, I will confirm that beer is a much better painkiller than wine. I have a torn meniscus in my left knee. Over-the-counter painkillers don't help it. Prescription painkillers don't help it. CBD doesn't help it. Wine doesn't help it. But after a few beers I don't feel it at all.

Beer. The miracle drug. And available without a prescription. Ask your doctor about...beer.

@Rod Nunley Beer makes you smart. After is made Bud Wiser.

Correlation is not causation.

The dose must be administered by a qualified bartender, or else you don't get a stamp on your medication history card.

Does this mean I have to wait 4 weeks for my second glass?
