A new study published in Frontiers in Psychology suggests that music actually makes beer taste better. Researchers sampled from a group of 200 people, splitting them into two groups. One group drank beer in silence and the other drank beer served with music.
The study showed that the group that listened to music while drinking their beer enjoyed their beer much more so than those who drank in silence. The beer was also more enjoyable without a label and when the song was familiar.
The study was assisted by the Brussels Beer Project, a crowdfunded brewery, and is one of several studies that has found this link between music and beer.
