A Beer That Will Solve Your Problems has Finally Arrived. The Question Is: What Took You So Long?

By Jeff Beer (for real)

Going by advertising alone, beer makes everybody better looking, funnier, and more charming. It surrounds you with interesting people and exciting times and will quench your thirst on a hot day all at once. But anyone who’s ever tried to recreate the magic of a beer commercial knows the result is too often soaked in fried food, antacid and shame.

But there is hope! Recent studies have substantiated what was by many, often discarded as a myth. University of Illinois at Chicago professor Jennifer Wiley has concluded that the average man produces his most creative thinking with an alcohol level of 0.075%. Known as the creative peak, it’s considered the ideal state for problem solving, inventing and generally coming up with great ideas.

As if that wasn’t enough of a welcome holiday gift, agency CP+B Copenhagen took Wiley’s research to the next level, working with Rocket Brewing to engineer a beer that claims to enable the average person to reach the desired 0.075%. Enter “The Problem Solver.” a craft IPA featuring a bottle indicator to find your creative peak. Drink the right amount to fit your weight to hit the magical 0.075%. The agency does offer a (obvious) note of caution: “Enjoying the right amount will enhance your creative thinking. Drinking more will probably do exactly the opposite.” It’s a fine line between that amazing short story idea and a hangover that will make your eyes bleed.
