Why We Love National American Beer Day
A. Beer has a refreshing taste
According to researchers, the taste of beer releases a chemical in the brain which makes people want to drink more. Moreover, beer’s taste - without even any effect from alcohol - can trigger the production of dopamine in the brain, the study by researchers from Indiana University found.
B. Beer brings people together
Beer provides that little bit of a reason needed to hang out with those we love. “Hey Hubert, want to grab a beer sometime?” Or “Hey Rihanna, want to grab a beer sometime?” I like to pretend I’m friends with Rihanna.
C. Beer is a reward
Beer is not just a drink, it is an achievement of sorts. From all the hard work that gets done – it ends with everyone getting together for a beer. It's sort of like a gold medal at the end of anyone's day.
