Sci has a piece up at the Guardian today, talking about a recent flurry of news reports on beer and dopamine. Everyone, get read for MAJOR NEWS. Did you KNOW, that the TASTE of beer increases DOPAMINE!?!?!?

The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
