The following infographic explains how some beverages may be affecting our body and brain more than we think. Both beer and coffee can affect us in good and bad ways, even though, it may be obvious that beer can affect the brain in a bad way as we have done the most dumbest things after having a beer or two.
There is a part in brain called “cerebral cortex” and when beer/alcohol hits the cerebral cortex, one feels less focussed and gets freed up from all the distractions. After 2 beers, the blood alcohol level reaches 0.07% and makes the person become more creative, but excess consumption of beer can lead to memory loss.
On the other hand, a person feels energized exactly five minutes after taking the coffee. The downside is drinking even small amounts of coffee will result in a tolerance and body will need more to get the same stimulation.
Therefore, the key is to drink in moderation, if one wants to reap the benefits of both coffee and beer. Bottom line is to have beer for coming up with great ideas and following it up by drinking coffee to execute those ideas.
