Have you ever dreamed of enjoying your beer and losing weight at the same time? Well, now you can! (Cue the cheesy music and the grinning pitch man.)

Yep, here we go again - another story about how beer is kinda good for you.

These studies that pop up all the time are only noteworthy because beer has had such a bad reputation for a long time. The truth is, as with most food and drink, there are good and bad things in beer and moderation is the key.
