Whenever the neoprohibitionists want to drown out the fun loving beer drinkers, they always resort to clinical findings in a study of over imbibers or even frank alcoholics to shove in our faces to demonstrate their superiority and our lack of restraint. Well, science as a tool works both ways, and there are plenty of research studies which show that craft brewed beer, in moderation, is actually better for you than is abstinence. Unless you have biliary tract disease, or liver disease, moderate beer drinking should pose no threat to the health of the adult population that enjoys craft beer as their primary beverage of choice. Although men tend to fare better in the health front than women, the gap is slowly closing according to most researchers in the field. While the reasons for the healthful benefits for beer are legion, the very best reason to drink beer is that it makes us feel good! As a beverage of conviviality, beer drinkers tend to be a very charismatic group, and contribute greatly to pub life, and better human relationships in public settings. In conclusion, all things being equal, craft beer is a better choice in the adult beverage consortium due to it’s ingredients, methods of production, and comparison to other less healthy alternatives including the so called diet and low carb beers currently on the market.
