Beer and Philosophy

Zoepolitics has written a nice entry about beer, good and evil, and philosophy. A very interesting post and I can recommend reading it here.

I like the idea about a self overcoming of viewing beer as either good and/or evil. My own 'philosophical' view would be to regard beer from a material Spinoza sense. Which would consider the (virtual) capacity for the beer to affect (not effect) a mode/body. The consumption of beer could therefore be beneficial to one and/or a society/culture. However, there is also those immanent imperceptible becomings where one can pass a critical threshold that means the body no longer consumes the beer, but rather the beer consumes the body - alcoholism.

Actually, some scientists have discovered is very good for health drinking two beers per day, because it has incredible curative properties, but only two beers because the abuse of drinking alcohol is terrible.m10m
