Healthy Beer? Who Needs It?

A beer-swilling, donut-eating co-worker of mine passed along to me some links to Men’s Health magazine wherein they discuss America’s top 25 craft beers and top 5 craft beer cities.  There’s also a another little section they do about the best and worst beers to drink (from a health perspective I guess).  Minnesota and the upper Midwest are noticeably absent from these articles.  And while I’m a bit annoyed, I guess I’m also thankful.  Men’s Health is not my go-to source for good beer advice.  Besides, I’d be a bit embarrassed for us to see Bender or Farm Girl make the list as great, low calorie, low carb beers to drink to keep one’s muffin-tops small.  Keep in mind that I’m chubbily biased.  For those of you who ARE concerned about dying at 55, you might find these articles interesting.

    The list of worst beers is ridiculous. I could find a beer that’s twice as bad for me in every category! And I’ll probably drink it this weekend, too.

    Looking through, I’d wager Samuel Adams is an advertiser…and Sierra Nevada is not.

    The best/worst list is full of Sam Adams as the “Drink This Instead!” option. Hmmmmm.

    And while Chicago may be a big city as far as bars, I think “Austin, TX” or heck, Twin Cities, could’ve made the list more for actually having good beer culture and breweries.

    Any thoughts on the Oregon Beer Festivals? Looking for a new festival for next year that’s not GABF, WBF, Great Taste, or Oktoberfest.

    if I had unlimited money, i’d choose the Vail Big Beer Festival from Jan 7th-9th.
