1. Beer drinkers live longer
Moderate drinking can be good for you, and beer is a nice tipple. Everyone knows that if you drink too much, you can fall over things, drive into things and it's really not a good thing to do. However, according to a number of studies, moderate drinkers live longer and better than drunks or teetotallers. So cheers!
2. Beer is all-natural
Beer is as all-natural as orange juice or milk. Beer doesn't need preservatives because it has alcohol and hops, both of which are natural preservatives.
3. Beer is low in calories, carbohydrates and has no fat or cholesterol
Beer is a seriously low-calorie drink. Twelve ounces of Guinness has the same number of calories as 12 ounces of skimmed milk: about 125.
4. Beer may improve your cholesterol
Beer has no cholesterol. Drinking beer regularly and moderately will tilt your HDL/LDL cholesterol ratios the right way. According to some studies, just one beer a day can boost your HDL by up to 4 per cent which is a good thing!
5. Beer can be safer than water in some circumstances
If you're abroad and advised not to drink the water, drinking the local beer is a safer bet. It will be safer than local bottled water, because it's boiled in the brewing process and kept sterile. Even if you drink a bad beer, life-threatening bacteria (pathogens) cannot live in it. So drink up – even bad beer is safer than water.
