Oh boy, this is gonna peeve Don to no end an potentially spark an internal BLOG WAR right here on our site. You can imagine my excitement! :)
I’ve written here before about the potential health benefits of craft beer, which offers proteins, flavonoids and other nutrients that can do a body good when consumed in moderation (I had to look that last word up).
I recently ran across a list of the differences between beer and whiskey on a site called differencebetween.net. While they cover the basic differences between ingredients and how each is made, the real difference they hit upon are health benefits. Turns out that while craft beer is good for you, whiskey kills.
Okay, maybe I’m overstating it a bit, but whiskey has none of the nutritional benefits of craft beer and its high ethanol content can lead to cancer. Beer one, whiskey zero. Whiskey is also a blood thinner, which may or may not be a good thing.
So there you have it – scientific proof that beer is better for your health than whiskey. Add in the variety, accessibility, affordability and overall awesomeness of my favorite beverage (I am the Beer Brother, after all), and I think it’s pretty clear that beer is far superior to whiskey in just about any way.
Trolling complete – any thoughts Don? :)
