Local Author Talks To CBS News About Low-Cal Beers

Posted by Bob Skilnik on April 12, 2010

I received an unexpected call from a very pleasant Kristyn Hartman at WBBM Chicago to pontificate about low-calorie/carbohydrate beers while also getting in a plug for “Does My Butt Look Big In This Beer? Nutritional Values Of 2,000 Worldwide Beers” and BEER: A History of Brewing in Chicago” (BRAND SPANKING NEW, $14.99 and signed by me, with orders fulfilled and shipped by Amazon —Seller name:—toddlintown—since I’m getting lazier as the days go bye and busy with my first granddaughter Norah).

Check out the story and then take a look at the video on the right side of the page.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…There’s enough interests in the viewers/listeners of the Chicagoland area for a regularly scheduled look at beer, the brewing industry and beer info in general. A producer/director at WTTW brought it up once to me after an appearance on Chicago Tonight, but nothing happened. The Chicago Tribune stated emphatically that a poll they took sometime ago indicated that readers wanted updates on wine but not beer.

The funny thing with a statement like this, however, is the response that I receive after local radio, TV or print exposure when I’m asked to discuss any aspect of beer or brewing; in this latest example, the CBS 2 Chicago video stayed in the 1st place (most viewed) position for a little over 32 hours. It was a nice, well-edited and light-hearted two minute look at a product that vastly overwhelms wine in national sales and interests.

I also like wine, but I still can’t get over the media feedback that I’ve received over the last decade that repeatedly “indicates” more viewer/listener/readership in wine versus beer. Is it just me that feels that there’s a media bias against beer? Is beer or brewery industry news assumed to be too unsophisticated to be reported on as a regular feature and instead beer-themed story skimmed off the slush pile of topics to be used as filler when “news” is a little slow?

Diabetics Given New Hope with Book Offering Thousands of Beer Choices That Reveal Their Calories, Carbs and Alcohol Content

Posted by Bob Skilnik on April 8, 2009

While Diabetes Associations Suggest Switching to Drinks That Are Lower in Alcohol and Sugar, Current Labeling Laws Fail to Provide Needed Information

 

 Does My BUTT Look BIG In This BEER? Nutritional Values Of 2,000 Worldwide Beers

Chicago, Ill. (PRWEB) April 8, 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. The valuable information provided in the paperback book can be used by diabetics under the supervision of their physicians, dieters counting calories or carbohydrates or beer drinkers who simply want to know the nutritional values of what they are drinking. Currently, this kind of information is only available on the federally-mandated nutrition facts labels of light or low-carbohydrate beers.

Tired of waiting for the Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) to implement transparency in alcohol nutrition labeling requirements, author Bob Skilnik has compiled an impressive array of beers, including popular imports and crafts, with their nutritional values.

“At the moment, individual states determine whether or not the alcoholic strength of a beer can be displayed on containers or advertising materials. If you’re looking for carbohydrate or calorie content on your favorite beers, forget it. You won’t find it, no matter what state you’re in. Suggestions by leading diabetes organizations to seek out beers with less alcohol and carbohydrates are meaningless if that information is not made readily available to consumers.”

A few years ago, the TTB, the federal agency that controls labeling requirements for alcoholic beverages, opened up a comment campaign for a possible new labeling design that drew over 18,000 comments concerning the proposed addition of a nutrition facts label on all alcoholic beverages, similar to what’s found on most packaged foodstuffs. About 96 percent of the comments received by the agency demonstrated a strong wanting for nutritional labeling on all alcoholic products.

“The brewing industry is currently rushing gluten-free beers to store shelves for those beer drinkers who rank among the 2 million Americans who suffer from Celiac Disease, a condition that can damage the intestines due to intolerance to gluten, a protein found in various grains such as barley. Other breweries are trying to capture the even smaller niche of those drinkers looking for ‘organic’ beers. In the meantime, almost 24 million Americans suffer from diabetes, a huge demographic in an otherwise flat market that finally has the opportunity to enjoy a beer or two with a meal or snack, empowered by the information provided in ‘Does My BUTT Look BIG In This BEER? Nutritional Values Of 2,000 Worldwide Beers’ while under the supervision of their physician, dietician or nutritionist.”

Bob Skilnik is a certified brewer and freelance writer. He’s been a contributor to the Good Eating Section of the Chicago Tribune and a former columnist for the LowCarb Energy magazine. The Chicago writer has appeared on ABC’s “The View,” ESPN2’s “Cold Pizza,” Fox News Channel’s “Fox News Live,” and Chicagoland print, radio and television outlets, preaching the moderate consumption and nutritional aspects of adult beverages. Skilnik is currently working on a similar nutritional research project with wine for late summer publication. More information can be found at “Drink Healthy, Drink Smart” (http://drinkhealthydrinksmart.com)

Nutritional Values of 2,000 Worldwide Beers

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 and in downloadable PDF form.

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 and downloadable file 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.

Moderation, Not Deprivation!

Preface

Whether brewers, vintners or distillers like it or not, the Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), responsible for labeling requirements of alcoholic beverages, is close to making it mandatory for alcoholic beverages to list their nutritional values. Whenever the TTB can finally arrive at some sort of standardized Nutrition Facts label that makes sense (it might take years), they have assured the drink industry that once they settle on an idea of what will be needed on the Nutrition Facts label, they will still give industry members an additional three years to redesign new labels and ease the cost of testing and relabeling by gradually implementing their compliance timeline.

One compelling reason why this will come to fruition is because of the hand of globalism in today’s universal trade and commerce. As the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States notes in their most recent comment in TTB Notice No. 74, “…this proposed rule change would bring TTB requirements into conformity with the provisions of the World Wine Trade Group (WWTG) Agreement on Wine Labelling (sic). As stated by TTB, ‘[these] negotiations proceeded from the view that common labeling requirements would provide industry members with the opportunity to use the same label when shipping product to each of the WWTG member countries. With a global economy and with free travel among consumers, we support TTB’s effort to harmonize its labeling regulations with international requirements. TTB’s proposal would have the beneficial effect of serving the interests of consumers, as well as eliminating a potential barrier to trade between countries.'”

Change is coming and it has the tailwinds of consumer support and NAFTA conformity behind it with a soon-to-be standardized world market of beer, wine and booze labels. Without acceptance by U.S. drink manufacturers, it’s conceivable that the import/export markets of beers, wines and spirits would come to a halt; but be assured, that that will not happen.

So in reality, the global economy is probably more the driving force behind the eventuality of nutritional labeling on beer, wine and booze than any concerns about the wants or needs of consumers.

But why worry about any of this? In the following pages, you’ll find nutritional information now that will help you to enjoy the moderate consumption of worldwide beer whether you’re counting calories, carbohydrates or WEIGHT WATCHERS® POINTS®, perhaps even trying to pack on the pounds, or simply trying to maintain your current weight. You can even use the alcohol by volume (abv) information in this reference guide to settle bar bets; What’s the strongest beer? The weakest? for instance.

Measurement Tolerances

“The Bureau [TTB] has determined that tolerance ranges are required with respect to labeled statements of caloric, carbohydrate, protein, and fat contents for malt beverages. The intent of these tolerances is to provide for normal production and analytical variables while continuing to ensure that the labeling is not misleading to the consumer.

Held, the statement of caloric content on labels for malt beverages will be considered acceptable as long as the caloric content, as determined by ATF [Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Bureau] analysis, is within the tolerance +5 and -10 calories of the labeled caloric content. For example a label showing 96 calories will be acceptable if ATF analysis of the product shows a caloric content between 86 and 101 calories.

Held further, the statements of carbohydrate and fat contents on labels for malt beverages will be considered acceptable as long as the carbohydrate and fat contents, as determined by ATF analysis, are within a reasonable range below the labeled amount but, in no case, are more than 20% above the labeled amount. For example, a label showing 4.0 grams (within good manufacturing practice limitations) but not more than 4.8 grams.

Held further, the statement of protein content on labels for malt beverages will be considered acceptable as long as the protein content, as determined by ATF analysis, is within a reasonable range above the labeled amount but, in no case, is less than 80% of the labeled amount. For example, a label showing 1.0 gram protein will be acceptable if ATF analysis of the product shows a protein content which is more than 1.0 gram (within good manufacturing practice limitations) but no less than 0.8 gram.”


Book Guidelines

You’ll probably notice disparities between the nutritional information of the same brands of beer, but brewed in different countries. Guinness or Beck’s comes to mind. Some worldwide breweries contract to have their beers brewed in satellite breweries, far from their home offices. The use of more easily available indigenous grains or accommodating known taste preferences of local beer drinkers can influence the use of different mixtures of grains in the mash, differently treated water sources, ever-changing ratios of various types of hops in the kettle, and even yeast strains in the fermentor, which can account for variances in calories, carbohydrates and alcohol levels for the same brand of beers in different countries. Guinness, for instance, is extremely popular in Nigeria, yet the cost of shipping malted barley from Ireland would be prohibitive. As a result, indigenous grains such as sorghum and soybeans can also be added to the grain bill. As noted throughout the book, and reflective of different brewing practices in a host of countries, the nutritional value for Guinness will vary widely. The beer is currently brewed in 51 countries!

Serving size for beer is listed in the book as 12-ounces (with rare exceptions), even if the beer comes in 22-ounce “bombers” or half-liter bottles, as per the TTB and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) suggestions. That serving size (12-ounces) for beer will assuredly be solidified when the TTB makes its final decision on labeling requirements. I have no idea how the TTB will handle high-strength beers such as The Boston Beer Company’s Utopia or Millenium brands, for instance. The brewery recommends a moderate 2-ounce serving size for these high-alcohol brews, but with a beer serving being defined as 12-ounces, this is just one more standardization problem that the TTB will have to deal with.

No sodium, fat, cholesterol or protein values are listed here. There is NO fat nor cholesterol in beer and trace amounts of sodium and protein values in your favorite brew. While TTB mandated alcoholic drink labels will almost assuredly display protein levels in grams and sodium levels in milligrams-all part of a labeling consistency for beer, wine, liquor and liqueurs-these numbers in beer are insignificant in my opinion, especially in light of the government recommendation of no more than two 12-ounce servings of beer for men and one 12-ounce serving of suds for women per day. For instance, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for sodium for a 25 old male is 1500 mg. Your average 12-ounce serving of Budweiser contains less than 10 mg of sodium. The average 12-ounce serving of Budweiser also contains 1.3 grams (gm) of protein while the RDA for protein for a male, 25 years and older, is 63 grams. (I used a 25-year old male for obvious reasons; they do enjoy their beers.) You could check out similar parameters for 25-year old women or different ages for men and women and you’d never find any beer, let alone a Budweiser, coming anywhere near RDA levels. You’d have to drink more than 150 bottles of Budweiser to hit the sodium RDA or chug down a little more than 49 bottles of the stuff to hit the protein RDA. Remember again; we’re considering the fed’s recommendation of no more than two 12-ounce servings of beer a day for men and one serving for women. The need to worry about sodium and protein in beer seems like a wasted exercise, so these nutritional values are ignored here. 

One more caveat. Breweries are changing, and tweaking their recipes all the time, skewing their beers’ nutritional values with any given batch. Also be aware that any measurement of the nutritional values of beer is based on an average analysis. No two batches of beer will ever be the same. That’s why the TTB gives an expected range (+, -) for calorie, carbohydrate and protein analyses. Of the many breweries that contributed to this book, The Lion Brewery in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania was the only brewery that sent me their beer nutritional information with expected ranges, not as definitive numbers. That’s really how you have to look at the information in this book; numbers will fluctuate with each batch of beer. Keeping the nutritional data within an expected range and deriving an average analysis of product is what’s given here.

I welcome any documented corrections to the material presented here and will post them on our website and will also include the newest numbers in future printings of this book. There are more than 2,000 beers in this list, the majority of them with ALL their carbs, calories, and alcohol by volume percentages listed. You’ll waste your time going through the various websites with nutritional values of beer. Using info direct from the breweries, I’ve often found that the website nutritional values are wrong; more often than not, very wrong!

This material, as presented, is copyrighted. Slight “ringers” with an insignificant difference of .01 g carbs or 1 calorie have been added to the list to track any attempts to duplicate this material.

We’ll be online soon with ever-expanding information on beer, wine, and booze nutritional values and be presenting plenty of tips on how to enjoy them in a moderate, responsible and healthful manner. 

On the website, you’ll find:

  • New and updated information  for the nutritional values for beer, wine and booze as more numbers come in
  • Lower-calorie, lower-carbohydrate and lower-fat recipe versions of your favorite mixed-drinks
  • Tasty recipes for making your own lower-calorie, lower-carbohydrate and lower-fat liquors, liqueurs and bar mixes
  • Food recipes using beer, wine and booze as condiments, with an emphasis on flavorful and healthy dishes
  • Video presentations of much of what’s listed above
  • A drink recipe exchange forum

Exporters and watchdogs question US booze labelling

Posted by Bob Skilnik on December 10, 2008

Here’s one more reason why the nutritional labeling of alcoholic beverages in the U.S. will go on for ages. Now we have the Europeans dictating what will go on the labels for beer, wine, liquor and liqueurs. However this shakes out, the Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) has noted that they will give the drink industry 3 years for compliance and why Does My Butt Look Big In This Beer? Nutritional Values For Over 2,000 Worldwide Beers will be a “Must Have” book for your household or favorite bar.

 

Exporters and watchdogs question US booze labelling

Proposals for new mandatory labelling requirements on alcoholic beverages in the US have come under criticism this week from foreign manufacturers and watchdogs for offering no benefit to the consumer.

Both the UK-based the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WTSA) and the US Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) claim that the current proposals to only label fat, protein and nutrients are a wasted opportunity for the industry and regulators alike.

 The labelling bill, which will remain under consultation until 27 January [2008], was announced by the US Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) in order to give consumers more awareness of what they are consuming.

 Research

In a statement released yesterday, the CSPI said it was unconvinced that the current proposals could serve the purpose, calling for “real-world” research for a new-uniform label that could encourage measured and moderated drinking in the US.

 George Hacker, the not-for-profit group’s alcohol policies director said that any labelling requirement would need to address the interests of the consumer and not those of liquor manufacturers or brewers.

“Consumers need information about calories, to help watch their weight; alcohol content, to help measure their drinking; and ingredients, to help comparison shop on the basis of quality and allergens,” he stated. “The TTB proposal also would not require disclosure of ingredients, nor would it require a statement communicating the government’s advice on moderate drinking.”

 Industry slant

 The CSPI said that it had therefore called for the TTB to go back to the drawing board over the proposals, which it claims have been designed primarily to please all manufacturers of alcoholic beverages.

 “There are brewers on the one hand, who would prefer not to disclose alcohol content on labels at all, and distillers on the other, who would look forward to portraying liquor as a virtual diet drink with zero carbs, zero fat, zero protein,” the group stated.

 While encouraged that the government had begun to take action on the labelling issue, Hacker said that health issues should be the main priority of any successful labelling bill.

 “It’s good news that the Bush Administration has begun a rule-making on alcohol labelling,” he stated. “It’s a shame that it’s proposed a confusing scheme that advances the public relations objectives of the industry more than it does the public’s health or the convenience of consumers.”

 Exporters view

 Though the watchdog criticized the proposals for having a pro-industry slant, some foreign alcohol manufacturers are also concerned over the labelling scheme.

 WTSA spokesperson John Corbet-Milward told BeverageDaily.com that there was concern from some European alcoholic producers that there was little point to the US adopting the labelling proposals, as they served no benefit to consumers.

 “Ideally, a single global labelling agreement would help ensure parity for all manufacturers,” Corbet-Milward said. “If there appears to be no benefits from the scheme though, then there is little point of introducing it in the first place.”

**********

In my opinion, the US Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is only adding to the labeling delay with its over insistance on doing things their way, guised as wanting what’s best for the consumer.

Old Jubilation is reddish brown and rich, and at first it seems to be a simple dark beer that’s been flavored with toffee or perhaps pine. But there are no added spices, just a beautiful blend of five different specialty malts blended nicely with English hops.
