At my job the occasional beer at lunch (or whenever) is not frowned up. But does it make a worker more productive?

Internet nerds like myself will be well aware of the Ballmer Peak, as made famous by the webcomic xkcd.

While I never drink that much at the office I do enjoy the occasional beer and feel like it helps me focus a bit more.

So is that feeling of focus legitimate? Or all in my mind? Let’s consult the chart!
