Your Brain on Beer vs Coffee

Coffee is a known stimulant that can help you finish your tasks with zeal. But did you know that beer can also play a role in helping you get things done?

Beer (modest amounts) can help you come up with a new idea. When alcohol hits your cerebral cortex it helps free up your mind of distractions which allows your brain to make deeper connections and come up with better ideas.

Coffee is good for when you already have the idea and just need to get to work. Caffeine binds with your adenosine receptors and gives you focus. Caffeine can kick in as quick as 5 minutes. 

Remember that excess consumption of any of these drinks will negate the positive effects. Make sure you don’t over do it! 

Maybe a coffee stout before your next escape room can help you solve it faster?
