3 Health Benefits Of Dark Beer for St. Patty’s Day
It’s that time again, March Madness and oh yes….St. Patty’s day! For the longest time St. Patty’s day was one of my favorite holidays. It ranked right up there with my birthday, then St. Pattys day. Coming in at number two to my birthday isn’t bad in my family.
However, as I have gotten older St Patricks day is more about enjoying my beer rather than setting a Guiness Record for drink the most pints of Guiness!
In America, St Patrick’s day is about celebrating with parades, green hats, and tipping some pints with some friends. I can’t really recall what we are celebrating, however I do remember having fun with friends and taking the time mid-winter to celebrate those friendships.
So to you I say, Happy St. Patty’s day my friend…Slainte!
St Patricks Health Benefits Of Dark Beer
Now that we are set in celebrating the day of friends, lets make some great choices this St. Patrick’s Day!
After all Guiness, the beer we were given from our Irish ancestors is healthier than some in your fridge!
- Calories in 1 pint of Guiness – 100
- Calories in 1 pint of Coors Original – 149
In that case, enjoy your Guiness! After all, everyone is Irish on St. Patty’s day.
3 health benefits of dark beer:
Silicone – Promotes bone strength which fights osterperosis
Fiber – Which reduce cholesterol levels and improve heart health…No thanks Activia, I’ll have a Guiness!
Iron – It’s in red meat and now it’s in your beer, so drink up!
Now, when you are kicking back your St. Patty’s day Guiness, you can relax knowing you are getting your fiber and won’t have to take your Activia Today. Thank Guiness!
Overall the social benefits of St. Patty’s day outweigh the health benefits of dark beer. But aren’t you glad you get a little of both?
