Beer, the stag do drink of choice, is apparently misunderstood and is in fact 'one of the healthiest alcoholic drinks', according to the Daily Mail. A new report has found beer, one of man's greatest inventions, is a rich source of vitamins, fibre, minerals and antioxidants and has a relatively low calorific value compared with many other alcoholic beverages. The report, commissioned by The Beer Academy, found that when drunk in moderation, beer is one of the healthiest alcoholic drinks available. A spokeswoman said: "Beer contains vitamins which can help you to maintain a well-balanced healthy diet, fibre to keep you regular, readily absorbed antioxidants and minerals such as silicon which may help to lower your risk of osteoporosis." We certainly raise our glasses to this news!
