8 Beers That You Should Stop Drinking Immediately
Banoosh ^ | April 3, 2014 | Mr Z

Posted on 04/07/2014 12:47:17 AM PDT by kingattax

Many of us choose what we eat very carefully, or at least dedicate our minimum attention to it. But when it comes to drinks, especially alcoholic beverages, we do little to make the best decisions for our health. Which is a HUGE mistake.

All the work for your body can be ruined in a weekend out. While foods and non alcoholic beverages are required to list their ingredients and are monitored by the FDA, beer does not belong in either.

Alcohol industry had lobbied for years to avoid labeling its ingredients. Some to protect its recipes, but most – to hide harmful ingredients.

Share This with Fellow Beer Drinkers

It’s important to expose companies that use harmful ingredients in our products. This information is hidden from the public with millions of dollars of false advertising, laws, etc. You can always vote with your money. As this information about GMO beers spreads, we will see a decrease in production of these beers and the companies may eliminate the harmful ingredients altogether. Most importantly, when you hang out with your friends, you will be able to share beer that’s more delicious and healthier.

What the f--k is a Banoosh?

If I drink 4 Guinness a week, that would total 95% of my high fructose corn syrup. I think I will be OK...

Budweiser does not contain corn. Rice is used in it’s recipe.

Most of the beer they are writing about is mass produced pisswater.

But, stop telling me what I can like and what I can’t.

I don’t drink beer much anymore, unless its a hot summer day at a barbecue.

About 10 years ago I was at Disney and had a couple of ZAMBEZIS

Woke up in the middle of the night thinking I was back in NYC and needed to double park the car due to alternate side of the street cleaning

Guinness is out for me, but not because of fish bladders or HFCS—because of the ridiculous St. Pat’s stunt this year.

The page recommends Heineken. I recommend against, for the same reasons given as for Guinness.

San Miguel is the only common beer where I live. I buy a case every two days for our small expat beach gathering each afternoon. It is considered to be a good beer. I am pretty much a wino, but I do have a few beers per day.

Is this ignoramus not intelligent enough to know that almost every food he eats is GMO’d at some point. Most people that use their head for something beside a hat rack call it plant breeding.

I doubt either of those is particularly good for you.

But fish bladders? Sound totally natural and appropriate to me.

They are fine but there are much better beers out there. Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale and Oatmeal Stout instead of New Castle and Guinness for example.

I was in a helicopter unit in Vietnam. The arrival of a pallet load of San Miguel beer was met with rejoicing & hosannahs.

San Miguel had no peer. For us it was the best there was.

Have been drinking Yuengling lately; as for Bud I’m reminded of the joke Monty Python had. It wasn’t in the TV version of the “Bruces” at the Univ. of Woolamaloo, but in live performances/albums one of the “Bruces” says, “American beer is like having sex in a boat: it’s f-—ing close to water”. (Yuengling is a US beer, but DOES have some flavor though!)

I think I saw an article in USA Weekend in Sunday paper where “The Doctors” recommended what you should and shouldn’t have, health wise, at a ballpark. Hot dog vs nachos? Hot dog not as harmful. Soda or beer? They said beer is not as harmful, as long as it’s in moderation.

They put Pabst on there? A cheaply priced beer that some like for cost (one place I go to had featured $1 16 oz drafts...then thew switched to Rolling Rock) and of course there’s that Dennis Hopper scene in Blue Velvet: Heineken?
F-— that s-—! PABST! BLUE! RIBBON! (gets a chuckle)

Yes, but you can’t get them at as many places and they are less expensive.

The Newcastle beer has been found to contain caramel coloring. Class 3 and 4 caramel coloring is made from ammonia, which is classified as a carcinogen. “The one and only” beer with cancer causing qualities.

I'd be very wary about making that assertion. It's like saying only one brand of cigarette will give you cancer.

If I listened to all the Banooshes out there I be eating weeds & drinking spring water directly from the spring like an animal.

Beer preference is to health & longevity as CO2 is to climate change.

When I am traveling, I make an effort to at least try the beers made near where I am. Of course, once I was near Atlanta and asked the waiter (who looked to be about 18 years old) what kind of beer they had that was brewed locally. He initially looked a bit perplexed and then blurted out, “We have Budweiser”. I ordered a martini.

Yep, Guinness is out for this Irish American. Murphey’s is better anyway. Sam Adams is also out. Heineken was never in. That is close to the worst beer I have ever swallowed. Unless I see some really public apology GTFU of my life. Saw a Sam Adams commercial last might where they actually had the nerve to play Irish music in it!

Years ago, there was a xeroxed cartoon that circulated through my workplace.

It depicted a well-endowed stallion drinking one brand of beer from a bucket while simultaneously relieving himself in another bucket. The source bucket was labeled “Budweiser” and the destination bucket was labeled “Miller Light”.

I expected to see actual contaminants or harmful ingredients, but the worst thing on their list seems to be MSG. Mostly “anti-GMO”, “anti-corn syrup” hysteria.

Other than New Castle Ale and Guinness, the other 8 beers on the list are swill.

My everyday beer at home are pilsners and lagers that conform to German Purity Law (water, yeast, hops and barley). Pilsner Urquell or Samuel Adams Lager, for instance. When I'm in a brew pub, I might go for the more exotic porters and stouts.

This article is odd though, beer is hardly "unhealthy" if consumed in moderation. You are probably better off with beer than any soda or "sports/energy" drink.

Seriously, you can’t honestly believe that tinkering with genes in our food will all end well. This is an assault on the entire planet. Not only because they are modifying OUR food supply, but they will eventually contaminate the ENTIRE world food supply. If you call yourself a conservative, this should be at the top of your priority list. Your ok with government controlled genetically modified food? This is a thousand times worse than government controlled healthcare!

I’ve no desire to either live forever or unnecessarily punish myself while I’m here. I think I’ll continue to *enjoy* most any red, brown or amber ale I encounter. If GMO stuff claims me early, so be it. Besides, I need to kick the bucket before that term life runs out.
