The Health of Beer

Much has been made regarding the good health impacts of wine, some of it made here on this blog. However this article touts the good influence that beer can have on your health. According to a UC David professor ( and A-B adjunct professor) beer contains valuable nutrients such as B vitamins, such as B12, folic acid and niacin, as well as antioxidants, such as polyphenols and ferulic acid. Beer of course also contains fiber, something wine does not. A short but good article that gives one more reason to lift up a pint to good beer.
