Winos rejoice as somebody very clever has finally legitimatised our penchant for the humble grape.
A small glass of wine or a pint of beer helps unleash creativity, Austrian scientists have found.
“Alcohol is so linked with creativity,” lead author Dr Mathias Benedek said. “Previous research has found almost half of the great writers had a history of drinking. We found that a small drink can indeed help with certain aspects of creativity.”
Don’t reach for the morning Merlot just yet; as Benedek explained that moderate drinking could simultaneously make focused work a little more difficult. No kidding.
