My grandpa used to add salt to his beer and said it made it taste better. Baking Soda increases alkalinity AND adds salt. Maybe there is something to it. Grandpa drank a lot of beer!

Table salt will reduce the bitterness of the beer. This is a big part of what salt does in cooking. For a fun experiment, taste some tonic water, then lick a bunch of salt and re-taste the tonic water. With enough salt you can totally negate the bitterness of the quinine and then you'll realize just how much sugar is in the tonic water.
