10 Healthier Beers (and How to Pick the Right One)


Feeling guilty about knocking a few back? It might be time to stop the guilt! Moderate beer consumption has been shown to help protect against heart disease and lower the risk of hypertension. (Just remember, we're talking moderate consumption, not all-night err-night affairs.) [1] [2]. As it turns out, all beers are notcreated equal, so grabbing whichever tallboy is on special this week doesn’t guarantee health benefits. Here, we've rounded up the beers most likely to bring a health punch to the party.
Many of beer’s benefits stem from natural antioxidants, called phenols, which are found in beer, wine, and many foods, such as brightly-colored fruits (think apples, oranges, and cranberries). Ales typically have one of the highest phenol concentrations, meaning they also pack more heart-protecting powersthan other beer varieties [3] [4] [5]. While phenols do provide some health benefits, slamming a keg won’t offer much more than a killer hangover. Stick with moderate alcohol consumption (one drink per day for women, and up to two for men) to get the health benefits without feeling down the next day [6].

Of course, phenol content isn't the only factor to take into consideration when choosing a cold brew. To help you make healthier choices while out on the town, we’ve created a list of our 10 favorite healthier beers, including some old-time favorites and some interesting blends. (And don’t worry—we’ve got our gluten-free friends covered, too!)

A-HEAD OF THE GAME—THE NEED-TO-KNOW
