I enjoy a good beer, but I don't think I can do cryptos so well while drinking.
On the other hand, that is a good reason to not spend all night doing them.
Just 'cos Ben said "Early to bed...", doesn't mean he followed his own advice. Had a history prof many years ago (too many, but that's beside the point) who specialized in Ben Franklin. My impression from him was that Franklin enjoyed a good time more than going to bed early and getting up likewise.
