‘Does My BUTT Look BIG In This BEER?’ Book Details Nutritional Values of 2,000 Worldwide Beers

Posted by Bob Skilnik on February 18, 2009

(PRWEB) February 18, 2009 — Gambrinus Media announced today that “Does My BUTT Look BIG In This BEER?: Nutritional Values Of 2,000 Worldwide Beers” (ISBN-13: 978-0982218204, $10) is now available in book stores and Internet book sites. Author Bob Skilnik has compiled an impressive array of beers, including popular imports, with their nutritional values. Frustrated by the bureaucratic pace of the Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) to react to consumer demand and implement new changes in alcohol nutrition labeling requirements, Skilnik contacted brewing industry sources for the kind of nutritional information that might one day be found on the containers of all alcoholic beverages. The result of his research has become a paperback reference book that can be used by dieters counting calories or carbohydrates or by beer drinkers who simply want to know the nutritional values of their favorite brews. Currently, this sort of information is only available on light or low-carbohydrate beers.

“Even if the TTB gave the drink trade the O.K. to add nutrition fact labels to their products tomorrow, the agency would still temper their decision with a 3-year lag period before making it mandatory. To prove a point to critics who say that this kind of consumer-friendly information is unnecessary on adult beverages and to quiet down my doctor who said that my 300-pound body needed a thorough downsizing, I began a weight loss program that included the moderate consumption of my favorite beers, using the nutritional information that breweries have provided me,” says the still shrinking Skilnik.
