Beer Science: Dark Beer reduces heart disease


In a research study from the University of Wisconsin, researchers examined the heart health of 8 dogs who had bad arteries.  They gave them either Guinness or Heineken over a period of time to study the results.

They found that those who drank predominantly dark beer hard significantly better arteries than those who drank light beer because of the flavonoids in the beer.

I hate to be swayed by basic research but I’d say drink to your heart’s health.  My next beer review will be just that: a wonderful Milk Stout from Widmers.  Look for it some time this week.
