Got a Cold? Drink Beer.

Sapporo Brewing in Japan recently released a study that says the humulone in hops can help the body fight the virus that causes the common cold. Unfortunately, you'd have to drink 30 cans for it to be effective.

Sapporo is investigating the idea of adding humulone to food.

Meanwhile, the protein in hops also makes you hair and skin shinier.

But is that "30 12-oz. cans" of Sapporo? Because an IPA would obviously contain a lot more humulone, so perhaps drinking just a half dozen of Stash IPA would effective? I happen to have a cold and case of it in the fridge, so maybe I'll give this a test.

The study was commissioned by Sapporo, so I assume that it would be 30 cans of Sapporo. I admire your dedication to science, sir.
