friends in pub drinking beer

Going to the pub is good for you! It was good to have our suspicions confirmed this week by an Oxford University study. And if anyone knows about pubs, it’s students.

It’s the social aspect that does most of the good - the boffins reckon pub-goers’ social networks are larger, leading them to feel more engaged and satisfied.

Even better, booze itself gives you some of those feelgood endorphins, boosting the bonding. Getting hammered remains a bad move, but still… in your face, Dry January!
