The good and the bad
Beer has no fat or cholestrol, and there's plenty of research on why it can be good for you. Beer creates beer bellies, impairs your judgment and driving skills, and there's plenty of research on why it can be bad for you. Point and counterpoint.

When to say when
There are many factors other than the numbers of beers you drink that determine how many is too many. How much you weigh, how fast you drink, what you've eaten ... It may sound politically incorrect, you should ask yourself: Am I drunk yet?

Hangovers happen
There are more hangover "cures" than there are styles of beer. For instance, back in the Middle Ages one cure called for a mixture of bitter almonds and raw eel. We've got some suggestions for avoiding the morning after or dealing with it when it arrives. Causes and cures.
