There may be some truth in this. Whenever my grandfather had a cold he always made sure to drink at least one shot of good bourbon every night.

My grandfather's remedy was a shot of Irish Whiskey. I swear by it. :D

However, the research comes with a catch. The amount of humulone in beer is so small that a person would have to drink 30 cans, each consisting of 12 ounces, in order to get its protective effect

That sounds like a challenge, if I've ever heard one.:cool:

At least as important as 468/f (in mHz):
Beer math: 2 beers per man X 1 ODA = 17 cases.

Repeat PRN.

I would add, except for those damn Flu shots. But it's gone after a night at the local brew house.

Yea, but beer also makes you fat. I'd rather be sick than fat!
