Skip to comments.8 Beers That You Should Stop Drinking Immediately

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
Its 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 thats more delicious and healthier.

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
Be still my heart - alcohol is bad for you- next it will be water or the air you breathe
Q: 99 bottles of beer on the wall and I should only drink how many? There is no answer because it’s none of anybody’s damned business!
Guinness is out for me, but not because of fish bladders or HFCSbecause of the ridiculous St. Pat’s stunt this year.
The page recommends Heineken. I recommend against, for the same reasons given as for Guinness.
Never mind that site’s left-wing sources (Greenpeace? They’re terrorists).
I’ll pass on the waring, I’d rather die happy but I don’t drink any type of Budwiser just because it’s nasty anyway.
All the opposition to GMO foods and high fructose corn syrup is leftist crap. There is NOTHING wrong with either.
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.
Actually, Budweiser does not contain beer.
Ah, the prohibitionists are making a comeback but under a difference guise.
EGGSactly Batman! If memory serves (been awhile since I had any) its akin to sex in a canoe...
This article reminded me to go out and buy a six pack of a beer I have not drank for years; Anchor Steam.
Ill continue to drink Budweiser Select.
You should stop drinking everything on that list anyway because they all suck... Tons better options out there
Just make your own, it’s actually very easy, and you control whatever you put into it.
I like Guinness and Newcastle.
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)
Give up Newsy Brown, over my dead liver.
Yes, but you can’t get them at as many places and they are less expensive.
New Castle? Nooooooooo!
I'd be very wary about making that assertion. It's like saying only one brand of cigarette will give you cancer.
Beer preference is to health & longevity as CO2 is to climate change.
The St. Patrick’s Day parade taught me which beers I should not drink.
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.
He probably didn’t know what “brewed” meant.
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”.
F That S!!! PABST BLUE RIBBON!
Im pretty sure high fructose corn syrup isn’t banned in many stores, since its everywhere.
Instant headache beer.
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.
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.
All the opposition to GMO foods and high fructose corn syrup is leftist crap. There is NOTHING wrong with either
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.
