Default Healthy beers

I was just wondering what are some of the healthiest beers? What are the least healthy? I heard Guiness is really good but i like Sierra Nevada stout better. is that as good as guiness?

Light Beer???

Beer in itself is not going to make you any fatter than the guy who doesn't drink. Exercise and a healthy diet are the key, and if you are doing that a couple of beers a day isn't going to make a difference.

Now if you are using beer to wash down hot wings deep fried in butter, then it might be part of the problem.

Sorry if I offended anyone who likes butter fried hot wings

WHAT??? All malt is sugar...sugar converts to fat...healthy???

Healthy as far as beer is concerned would be a weizen...drink the yeast from the bottle...alcohol uses up vitamin B...yeast is vitamin B.

Monks were authorized (drank) up to 5 liters of beer a day during Lent in lieu of food due to fasting...ever seen a skinny monk?? Don't think so...

All beer is good for you in moderation.

Anything that is dry. Guinness is a dry stout, meaning that it has a lower amount of resigual sugers in the beer. Some wheat beers are dry also IIRC.

Default Healthy!?!

If you worry about your health throughout maybe let's say 65% of your life, then how could you possibly enjoy what little bit (35%) of life you have left to savor that wonderful taste? If you cannot manage to keep yourself in shape simply because of procastination and laziness, then just give in and enjoy all of those wonderful beers out there. If your health is a concern for natural reasons beyond your control, then I guess you need to decide what is more important; listening to your doctor or grabbing life by the ass and seize the moment..... carpe deim.
