(HealthCastle.com) Cold drinks are essential for any summer barbecue party. For many Dads, their favorite beer may be the only choice of drink! This Father's Day, why not help Dad explore other beer options that may have less of a hit on his calorie intake and health.
Regular Beer: Regular beer, mostly lagers and ales, usually contains not more than 5% alcohol.
Light Beer: Light beer usually contains less alcohol (~4.2%) and fewer carbs, giving it a lighter taste and fewer calories. Ultra light beer, with even lower carb levels, are also available - they are often marketed as low-carb alternatives.
Dry Beer: To produce minimal aftertaste, dry beer is usually made with fewer carbs.
Draft Beer: Bottled draft beer is marketed as beer tasting and appearing like beer from a keg. It is usually filtered, which results in a lighter tasting beer.
Stronger Beer: Stronger beer, like porters and stouts, usually has a higher alcoholic content (sometimes as high as 8 - 9%).
Gluten-free Beer: There are even beer options for the Dads who are intolerant or allergic to wheat! These beers are usually made with gluten-free grain sorghum.
Non-alcoholic Beer: For the Dads who are not able to drink alcohol for health or religious reasons, or who simply prefer a non-alcoholic option, non-alcoholic beer (< 0.5% alcohol content) is a great substitute for the real thing that has way fewer calories, too.
Note: Nutrition information quoted above is based on a 12-oz serving from US formulations.
Dads may have a special license for drinking. Researchers from the University of Florida found that men who are regular, light drinkers are 29% less likely to develop heart disease than men who never drink alcohol or only drink alcohol occasionally. So enjoy your beer this summer! The current recommendation is no more than 2 drinks of alcohol per day for men - that works out to two 12-oz beer bottles.
