Beer fights the flu? Who knew!?

Drink up!  Hoppy beers contain cold fighting ingredients according to this article from the Weekly Pint:

"According to AFP (Agence France-Presse), results of recent medical tests in Japan show that ingesting large amounts of humulone, the key ingredient in hops (which give beer aroma and bitterness), might help fend off a form of seasonal sickness in adults, specifically “RS”, or Respiratory Syncytial virus, which can lead to severe forms of pneumonia and bronchitis."
