Why? Do I just feel more productive because I'm drunk? Or am I truly more productive? Usually I just want to chill but after a few beers, I'm taking gravity readings, cleaning kegs, mowing the lawn, brewing beer, you name it.

Agreed. But im only more productive with brewing or beer related tasks. Nothing puts an end to an otherwise productive day of yard work like that 3rd beer.

Maybe all the calories you're consuming is giving you more energy? Do you only eat a little bit during the day?

Or maybe all those crappy chores become more fun when you have a buzz on. We call it a 'cleaning party' when we pour a few drinks and get the weekly house cleaning done.

Yeah usually I just get in the mood to do menial tasks but I still feel productive. I mean, I don't want to paint the fence right now, but I just gave a nice cleaning to both of my kegs.

Crap, I actually burst out laughing!

And to the OP, I think you are the anomaly if you are actually more productive when drunk. I usually start feeling lazy and UNproductive after a few swallows. By the time I'm pretty buzzed all I can think about is going to bed (not usually alone...)

If you are drinking while you wrote this I'm gonna have to go with no.
