This part of brain is called the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex controls conscious thought, language, and interaction.

you get more energy!!



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.



Caffeine's effects kick in only after 5 minutes, which gives you more energy and a stronger ability to focus.



The Bad



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.



The best time to drink



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.



Although!



Drink too much of either and you'll lose the benefits of both. Everything in moderation, folks.



Conclusion



By Golly, I've got it!



And now I must swim!

Beer is good for kickstarting your brain into coming up with great ideas.
