MOST hangovers are wrongly blamed on beer that is contaminated.
The Institute for Studies found that beer drinkers prefer to blame the natural after effects of beer consumption on ‘dirty pipes’ or some other obscure fault.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “Drinkers are reluctant to accept that beer consumption almost inevitably leads to feeling dreadful.
“Hence they attribute the morning-after effects of alcohol consumption on their pint being somehow ‘bad’.
“Frankly all pints are ‘bad”. It’s the ‘bad’ ingredient than makes them ‘good’.”
Beer fan Tom Booker said: “After drinking several litres of beer last night, today I find my vision is blurry, plus I have visible sweat patches and a lingering sense of paranoia.
“Clearly this is all caused by the publican failing to correctly observe some aspect of beer maintenance.
“Actually the glasses looked quite dirty, I probably had a dirty glass with bacteria in it.”
