Same goes for this blog

Scientists-- actual, legitimate, peer-reviewed scientists -- decided to study the "Effects of acute alcohol consumption on rating of attractiveness of facial stimuli."

Yes, you read that right, the University of Bristol in England studied beer goggles and found that they do exist.

According to researchers Lycia L. C. Parker, Ian S. Penton-Voak, Angela S. Attwood and Marcus R. Munafò, people who drank found members of the opposite sex more attractive than those in the placebo group. Oh that poor, sad, lonely placebo group.

The best finding, however, was the gender bias inherent in drinking:
The effects of alcohol consumption on ratings of attractiveness persist for up to 24 h after consumption, but only in male participants when rating female (i.e. opposite-sex) faces.
Sounds about right.
