They always say beer cures your troubles and worries. Also minor aches and pains...
Well i'm feeling under the weather, does beer also cure the cold?

Sadly, it does not. However, it does alleviate the symptoms long enough for you to fall asleep. :-)

Slight side note but at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin they said Irish doctors used to perscribe Guinness to pregnant women for their aches/pains/sicknesses.

Hmm...

During Prohibition, my great grandmother was told by her doctor to make homebrew, to treat her post pardum depression.

Hehe, I was just listening to a Jamil Show podcast last night and they were joking about making nyquil beer.

Hard to taste beer when you have a cold. That's what really pissed me off.

My sister is nursing and the doctor told her to drink a guinness a day to help keep the milk production up. Unfortunately he also said that more isn't better in this case

Sounds like someone found a good use for some BMC! Nothing to taste anyway.
