Weekend Question: What do you drink while gaming?

In my opinion as a Dutch person, I have to say that Heineken is pretty bad. I prefer pretty much any other Dutch pilsner.
It's Oranjeboom 8.5%. I'm sure it's same one I discovered years ago in a specialist bar in Brighton. It's got a kick.

But I read the other day that the dopamine shot you get while gaming is equivalent to a shot in the arm, only it's a natural high.
So we're saying that's good and healthy right... Right?
Well I suppose the natural high we get from gaming might be equivalent to doing some exciting sports.

It's something I wonder about, if you suspend your disbelief, can your mind experience in gaming be similar to a real scenario. It seems the same neurotransmitters are released.

I don't drink much.
Yes, I know about that, but I wasn't aware that Tyskie is popular enough there to be freely available in stores. :) A pleasant surprise!
Yes large Polish communities here(UK). Polish church, clubs have been established for years, but there is a Polish shop on most main city streets. I buy my fresh bread in one, smoked cheese and these buttery biscuits in another.

while gaming,i drink some form of cola (pepsi or coke, but now have lidls own brand to try it out,not as bad as sainsburys own cola).
sometimes after a late night session ill drink some form of alcohol-i can only drink a bottle or a couple of shots mixed with something as it messes with my medications.

Arthur Guinness would like a word…

Heineken? Good brew, that.

Or Bavaria… speaking of, I lived briefly in Munich—now that's a city which takes its beer seriously! 12 major breweries if I recall correctly.
nice-i love bavaria, i didnt know it was so widely recognised and available.
it used to be extremely cheap-around 80p a bottle in asda a couple of years ago then people caught onto it and now id rather drink a pint tin of red stripe or stella-theyre not amazing but they do the job i suppose.

There is quite a large range of drinks. Pewla, Zubr, Zubrowka etc..
Yes I was thinking about it, neraly every small local shop sells Polish lager, plus the supermarkets with an isle of Polish food. So I think the English must have a taste for it.

As an add on to what do you drink while gaming.

What else have you set up around your PC; a fridge?

I've got headphone hooks and an industrial fan with a remote, mostly for me and PC(optimistic about summer!!).
