Cliff Clavin knows his stuff -

I was reading on the web today that alcohol consumption may reduce brain size. I am thinking Cliff from the Cheers TV show was dead on about the buffalo theory.

'Well you see, Norm, it's like this . . . . 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 back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

The article article on the brain shrinkage can be found here

CNN Health News.

You be the judge - I think the Cliff is wise!

Ok more news - Todd is brewing up another batch of our One Planet Ale. Dangerous Dan and Donna will be in Neenah for the brewfest this Friday night. The Tap room will be open for it's usual fun and frivolity on Friday night as well.

I want to shoot a special thanks to Pheasant Ridge and the Rajin' Cajuns who were up for a shoot over the weekend! What a great weekend and much fun was had by one and all. Also, our friend Kevin won the rib cookoff contest on Saturday night!

Talk with you all later
