Pick up a candy bar, a bag of potato chips, or even your kid’s favorite sugar-coated breakfast cereals and you can refer to a Nutrition Facts label that gives you the kind of nutritional information that you, the consumer, deserves to know.
But pick up a bottle of your favorite beer, and unless it’s a low-calorie or low-carbohydrate brew with a federally-required Nutrition Facts label emblazoned on it, you have no idea what, if any, nutritional components are in a regular-brewed stout, porter, bock, wheat beer or even a simple
American-style pilsner beer…
…Until NOW! Whether you’re counting calories, carbs or even Weight Watchers® Points®, here’s the nutritional information that you can’t find anywhere else but in these following pages for
over 2,000 worldwide beers.
Moderation, Not Deprivation!

The folks at ColligiateTimes.com have elaborated on a recent study that indicates that beer might be just the thing to quench your thirst and rehydrate your body after a workout, and since anything remotely connected to beer sounds good to me, here ya go!
After students performed strenuous exercise until exhaustion in 104 degree Fahrenheit temperatures, one group was given two pints of beer while the other group drank the same amount of water. Both groups were then allowed to drink as much water as they wanted and their hydration levels were tested soon after. The tests revealed a slightly better measurement in the beer drinkers than those who drank water.
Personally, I’ve never been able to slam a beer after a workout or simply an hour or two in the garden during a warm summer day. Water first (for me), then a beer. But as they say, your results may vary.
More on this study and its consclusions….
