5 Unconventional Uses for Beer

You know that scene in A Few Good Men where Tom Cruise says he wants the truth and Jack Nicholson’s all like, “You can’t handle the truth!”? Yeah, here’s the deal: we think you can handle it. And the truth is… beer is good. There, we said it. And we feel better now. Speaking of feeling better, beer might actually help you feel better. Maybe. There’s a chance.

Anyway, here are 5 new reasons to try Kräftig. Whoops, we mean 5 unusual ways to unlock the potential benefits of Kräftig:

  1. Wash your pillowcases in Kräftig

Rumor has it that the smell of hops can help you fall asleep. Apparently, the compounds in it have a calming effect on the body and can help with mild anxiety. Just please don’t sniff and count sheep. Could be dangerous.

  1. Rinse your hair with Kräftig

For some extra volume (because let’s face it… we all like being a little “extra” sometimes), try shampooing with beer. It keeps hair looking shiny and youthful, so that’s pretty nice. You can even soak your hair and then go lay in the sun for an easy hair highlighter.

  1. Take a bath in Kräftig

Soaking in beer can help your skin. Hops, barley, and yeast act as exfoliating and detoxifying agents and can even clear acne. So, if your body decides to take you back to your awkward high school days, find a tub pronto and drop some lager in the water.

  1. Drink a Kräftig and keep your eyes on the prize

A Kräftig a day could keep the doctors away. At least the optometrists, that is. Okay, you should definitely still see your optometrist every year. But still. Rumor has it, the antioxidants in beer can help reduce the risk of cataracts. So yeah, there’s that.

  1. Ice with a Kräftig.

Please don’t get in a fight. But if you do, cool down with a Kräftig. Literally. Use a cold can as an ice pack. Hold it against your shiner, or that muscle you pulled while swinging at air. Just put a thin fabric between the can and your skin, otherwise bad things could happen. Like frostbite.

So, there you have it: 5 more reasons to love Kräftig. We’re not scientists (okay, Marc kinda is), so we can’t really speak for the plausibility of these things, but we still think they’re pretty cool. Now, excuse us while we go draw a beer bath.
