So the way I'm reading it they gave each dog 24ounces of beer each day. I'm assuming these dogs were super small like chihuahuas that way when you scale the volume of beer up for my weight I can drink like 12 beers each night and claim it's for health. That's my excuse anyways....

Who would'a thunk it - I'm sitting on the couch, remote control in one hand, stout in the other - and I can call it a "healthy living".



BTW, my guess would be that the healthiest beer of them all must be wheat beer. That's because of the brewers yeast, suspended in the beer:

But they say Guinness is good for you because it has antioxidants, unlike the lagers.

Maybe it's not the Guinness, but the trub that's good for you?
