|Effects||+1 Charisma, +1 Strength, -1 Intelligence|
Beer is an addictive drink in Fallout 3. Drinking it will increase your Charisma and Strength by 1, while decreasing your Intelligence by 1. The +1 Strength bonus will temporarily increase your lifting load by 10 pounds, which can be very helpful if you find yourself over-encumbered in the middle of nowhere. All alcohol in the game has the same effect, but beer has the lowest value, meaning you should keep beer for personal use and sell the higher value alcohol.
