    Your sarcasm meter needs calibrating.

      In fact... no. Any positive effect studies suggest about alcohol are lower than the toxicity effects. The only good effects of the beer come from the other ingredients which obviously are not only found in beer.

      I, myself, find a bit annoying this "beer propaganda", but not because it's beer or any other alcohol beverage, but because it has nothing to do with the topic of Phoronix. Even if it were cocacola propaganda, it would be annoying, so much hype in an article for such a trivial matter that is not even related to the website.

        Deal with it.
        I don't like beer but good on him for showing his passions in life! For me it's chocolate. PS:

        I'm Australian and there are a lot of beer drinkers down here:
