Hmm, maybe this is why I turn into a loud-mouthed know-it-all after a 12 pack of Meister Brau. According to independent.co.uk:
Drinking too much wine damages the brain more than beer or spirits, scientists have discovered.
New research on the long-term effects of heavy drinking shows that one area of the brains of wine drinkers was smaller than that of other people studied who drank different drinks in greater amounts.
The ground-breaking study shows that the hippocampus, the part of the brain involved in memory, spatial tasks and many other functions, was more than 10 per cent smaller in those whose tipple was wine than in those who favoured beer.
As someone who drinks wine, beer, spirits and, occasionally Scotch Guard, I understood three words of that report. Well, back to Happy Hour.
