The Good



Beer makes you less worried about the world around you, which frees up your brain to make deeper connections and come up with great ideas.

A couple of beers makes you less focused and decreases your memory.



Drinking even small amounts of coffee will result in a tolerance and your body will need more to get the same stimulation.

Beer is good if you are searching for an initial idea.



Coffee is good if you've already got an idea and you just need to fucus on the busy work.
