The Battle Of The Brews: Coffee vs. Beer


Web design is one of those professions where being both creative and detail-oriented are integral to success.  How fortunate, then, that I came across an article extolling the virtues of coffee and/or beer when applied to those two traits!  We all know that coffee (that is, caffiene) can energize you, and help you focus on quickly and efficiently completing the tasks at hand.  Beer (i.e. alcohol), on the other hand, loosens the reins on focused activity, and actually helps enhance your creativity.

This well-written article breaks down the results of drinking each beverage in an easily digestible (pun intended) yet scientific matter, then gives reasons why you might consider imbibing each.  Moderation with both beverages is the key, of course, as drinking both too much caffeine and too much alcohol make getting any quality work done impossible. Of course, water should always be your drink of choice for optimum health, but sometimes you just gotta hit that deadline! 🙂
