Most people naturally associate the word beer with gut.  And, everyone knows why.  You can spot a beer gut from miles away.  Even though you're not likely to link beer with healthy man in the near future, there're plenty of compelling reasons to do just that.

Beer is one of the healthiest alcohols? Here's why:

  • It's high in fiber (odd, considering it's a drink, but great for digestion).
  • It's rich in antioxidants and polyphenols.
  • It's loaded with B vitamins (B3, B6, B9, and B12).
  • It helps to reduce your risk of diabetes.
  • It's effective at reducing stress, preventing heart attacks and strokes.
  • It's brain-friendly thanks to its high silicon content.
  • It can improve bone health.

All of these benefits are only for those who drink a beer or two per day.  More than that and the negative effects of alcohol pretty much negate the benefits you get.  But, it's still an excuse to enjoy the occasional brewskie.  

Looking for the healthiest beers to stock in your fridge?  No worries.  We've got a selection that you'll fall for.  And our fave?  It's the brew that started the beer health trend: Guinness Draught. Not only is it fairly low in alcohol, but it's one of the best heart-smart beers.  Cheers!

For Belgian beer lovers, this is the beer you want to try! The beer has been brewed together with kombucha tea, giving it a funky, tart flavor of lemon that you can't help but love. It's low in alcohol (just 3.5%) but rich in the Vitamin C and B vitamins that makes kombucha tea such a healthy choice.

This beer is brewed with spruce needles in the vat, which gives it a unique flavor as well as awesome health benefits. Spruce is an herbal remedy dating back hundreds of years, used to improve circulation, decrease stress, and even speed up wound healing! It's fairly high in calories (210 per bottle), but totally worth it!

What? Toasted hemp seeds in your beer? Thankfully, the hemp seeds are tested to ensure that the brewing process does not produce THC (the stuff in marijuana that makes you high), but you still get all the healthy cannabinoids from the seeds. This is a brew meant to help you relax, lower your blood pressure, and lubricate any social situation.

This India Pale Ale is made to the very high organic standards in the US, so you can be certain that it's free of chemicals, pesticides, and additives. It's as natural and healthy a beer as it gets, and though it's a bit higher in calories (200 calories in 12 ounces), it's an antioxidant-rich beer that's wonderfully hoppy to the taste.

The taste of raspberries mixed with beer? Odd, but surprisingly tasty! Raspberries pack an antioxidant punch that blends nicely with the polyphenols and flavonoids from the beer (thanks to the hops). Plus, the brew is gluten-free (made with corn, sorghum, and raspberry malt), so it's ideal for any gluten-intolerant beer lover.

This doesn't taste like regular beer, and that's because it isn't! The brew is infused with ginger (an amazing superfood that fights inflammation, throat infections, and heart problems), spices, and herbs, packing a flavorful punch that is surprisingly low in both calories (131 per bottle)--though not as low in carbs (12.1 grams per).
