To answer that question in short, yes and no. Anything can be “bad” for you in excess, which is why (most) things are required to be taken in moderation. We encourage all our readers to do their part in drinking responsibly.
Well, we wouldn’t necessarily say beer is “good” for you– don’t replace it with your daily serving of fruits and vegetables– but it does have its health benefits. According to a study by Pennsylvania State University drinking a pint or two of beer a day, may reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease or suffering a stroke. The reason being that it appears to slow the decline of HDL (aka: high-density lipoprotein – the “good” cholesterol) in your body. Of the 80,000 adults who participated in the study those who drank beer MODERATELY had a higher HDL.
Based on academic studies the Telegraph has put together a list of the top 10 health benefits of beer (for full details on the studies and explanations of each one check out the full article). So without further ado the case for drinking a pint or two.

While we love beer, we always encourage drinking responsibly. These jarring stats are definitely another layer in the drink responsibly campaign and are great to keep in mind as you delve into the exciting beer world.
