Beer and Reproductive Fitness

I had dinner with John Durant the other night, and one of the things that we discussed in a wide-ranging conversation was alcohol and and it's impact on human evolution.

Today I come across this item:

"No matter their gender or orientation, beer-lovers are 60% more likely to be okay with sleeping with someone they’ve just met."

That explains a lot.  Alcohol may or may not have an impact on the human genome, but clearly beer-drinkers are going to populate the Earth.

John's put together a bunch of great events, btw, and has a bunch more planned, so follow his blog so you too can attend.

He serves beer... ;)
