We all know that drinking beer puts you in a good mood. But did you know that even just a sip can help the way you feel?

Our beer event is this Saturday. Buffalo On Tap is shaping up to be one of the biggest events we've put on yet. With over 70 breweries and 100+ samples, you can't beat the value of the ticket price either.

But here's the health benefit to attending: Scientists have proven that even just a small taste of a cold beer can bring you out of a funk:

A new study reveals that the mere taste of beer, in the absence of any alcoholic mechanism, can touch off a dopamine surge.

What is dopamine? According to Psychology Today:

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain's reward and pleasure centers. Dopamine also helps regulate movement and emotional responses, and it enables us not only to see rewards, but to take action to move toward them.

In other words, it can help to improve your mood. So if you are feeling down these days and need a little pick me up, come out Saturday to the Buffalo Convention Center for Buffalo On Tap and join us for some fun!
