Beer is good for you — it says so on the internet; so it must be true. 😉

I'm not even going to open that link!! Beer is good to me! I know it to be true! I've made some of my best decisions while drinking beer! Military, marriage, divorce, marriage, kids,third car, DUI, told my boss to ****off, Disclaimer.. most of that isn't true. LOL!

On a serious note, I think beer, especially home-brewed beer, is good for you in moderation. DUH!! Which leads to the question of, what is moderation? I like to sit on the porch after work and sip a few beers. Talk with my wife and unwind. I think life is good with beer in it!

No, it's not.
Sauergut (live culture, not pasteurized) on the other hand, it's all probiotics, specially the mixed culture ones.
