Support Your Mindful Drinking With Beneficial Beer

Support Your Mindful Drinking With Beneficial Beer

At Beneficial Beer, we're here to support your mindful drinking practices. However, the mindful drinking community is curious - Does alcohol affect meditation? What are the best substitutes for mindful drinking? 

Beneficial Beer can be your answer to maintaining that zen-like edge. But first… 

Does Alcohol Affect Meditation? 

Meditation is all about paying attention. It's about being present and finding that sweet spot between relaxation and alertness.

But did you know that excessive alcohol consumption can throw a wrench in the works? Here’s how: 

  • Neurotransmitter Chaos: Too much alcohol can mess with your brain's neurotransmitters, such as GABA and glutamate. This can throw off the balance you need for mindfulness.
  • Relaxation vs. Alertness: While a drink might help your body relax, it often leaves your mind in a fog, reducing mental sharpness. Meditation is a balance, after all. So too is mindful drinking. 
  • Brain Wave Scrambling: Meditation helps your brain shift from chaotic beta waves to calming alpha and theta waves. But after a while, alcohol can suppress those soothing alpha waves.

Even the basics of Buddhist ethics (the 5th of the Five Precepts) suggest avoiding alcohol to keep your mindfulness game strong.

But hey, you don’t need to move to a Tibetan monastery to see the benefits. Cutting down on alcohol can do wonders for your mental well-being.

With Beneficial Beer, you can enjoy a great-tasting beer and stay mindful. 


Best Substitutes for Mindful Drinking

1. Soft Drinks: 

Sometimes, a fizzy drink is all you need to curb those cravings. Sparkling water is a great first choice. Herbal teas are fantastic for slowing your drinking pace because they’re hot.

2. Non-Alcoholic Beers: 

Non-alcoholic beers have come a long way, and at Beneficial Beer, we’re proud to offer some of the best. The familiar taste of beer without the alcohol is your perfect mindful drinking companion: 

  • Stone Cold Lager: Offering a crisp and refreshing taste that rivals traditional beers.
  • Wagon Drivers Pale Ale: A rich, hoppy flavour and smooth finish provides the full pale-ale experience.
  • Dave's Drunkenless Dark Ale: For those who prefer a deeper, maltier taste. This non-alcoholic dark ale features notes of chocolate and coffee.

3. CBD Drinks: 

CBD drinks are another fantastic alternative. These drinks contain CBD, a non-psychoactive compound derived from the hemp plant.

Known for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties for relaxing without the buzz.
