Comfort foods and drinks are such a hot topic that people love to talk about the subject insistently. There are hundreds of thousands of websites devoted to food, recipes, and ideas of what to consume or not consume if a person wants to feel better and lift their spirits.

Yakult conducted a study of 2,000 adults, asking them what they prefer to eat or drink when they want to feel better. No surprise, chocolate ice cream, and even bacon made the list but the number 11 spot on the list of the top 20 favorite mood boosting foods and drinks went to beer.

If life has been trying to take you down lately, we’ve got just the thing to lift your spirits and put you in a better mood – the Binghamton on Tap Craft Beer Festival where you'll find both beer and food.
