These jokes are so tired and blatantly misogynistic that they would likely be considered antiquated and sexist in a midcentury fraternity house. More
Alcoholic beverage manufacturers are now allowed to broadcast information such as calorie, carb and fat content on cans and bottles. Will they?
Saint Patrick’s day is this upcoming Sunday, March 17, so for today’s Meatless Monday recipe roundup I’ve corralled some fine vegan and vegetarian beer-food recipes. We’ve got beer-battered pickles. Vegan beer cheese soup. A whole bevy of Guinness-garnished vegetarian dishes.
Would you serve boozey food to your kids? More
Between pumpkin lattes and apple desserts, it’s easy to forget that one of the funnest parts of fall is Oktoberfest–especially because, if you’re vegetarian or vegan, there aren’t a whole lot of German or Bavarian delicacies that cater to your diet. While there’s a lot to avoid if you don’t eat meat–bacon and sausage are two of beer’s favorite friends–there are also plenty of vegetarian Oktoberfest recipes, and even some vegan ones too. We dug around for some recipes to help you make the celebrations work for you (and Meatless Monday). More
President Obama wants to be that guy with whom you can kick back, relax and enjoy a beer. At least that’s the hope as his campaign revealed the previously top-secret recipes for their honey ale and honey porter home-brewed beers. It’s also the hope that this will help him appeal to voters in a way that Romney can’t. More
Alright, I’m just going to admit it: while I’m a health blogger by day, I’m kind of a tippler by night. Which is to say, I enjoy a good cocktail and a frosty pint of beer, calories and health studies be damned (although, actually, moderate drinking has been getting some love from Science, lately). But one of my favorite, favorite ways to get some refreshing alcohol in me is to make beer cocktails, which are pretty much exactly what they sound like. And while a beer cocktail isn’t exactly a health food, adding soda water, fruit, and other not-that-bad ingredients can lighten the load on an otherwise gut-bombing brew. More
Guinness isn’t just the official beer of St. Patrick’s Day–it’s also great in recipes, has a rich history, and is one of the most successful selling beers of all time. But it’s also (for the most part) made with isinglass, which is a fish byproduct, and makes the heady brew unsuitable for vegetarians and vegans. If you’re treating yourself to a glass of ale tomorrow night, opt for one of the ones on our festive vegan Irish beer list. More
If you’re looking for a little help-me-survive-the-in-laws this Thanksgiving, a glass or two of wine may not be your only option. In fact, according to a new study, it may not even be your healthiest one. That’s because researchers are now telling us that beer can provide some better health benefits–even if it doesn’t go as well with turkey. More
While it’s true that many health-conscious women tend to limit the number of brewed beverages they consume, many health conscious women also have brains, taste buds, and some pride in their gender, and thus, would not be caught dead purchasing or drinking something called “Chick” brand beer. Not even when the bottle looks like a woman in a little black dress. More
If you’re kicking yourself for getting overly festive on St. Patrick’s Day, this beer infographic from Belancio design firm should make you feel better. (As for the actual hangover symptoms; you’re on your own.) Their stats show that your beer-drinking habit isn’t all bad (as long as you’re sipping a pint or two; not ten). Some studies show that moderate drinking could help you live longer than your abstinent peers, and other benefits include lowering stress and risk of diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and senile dementia: More
I love festive 5ks and big-city races; even more so if they promise specialty snacks and drinks afterward. Bagels and donuts aren’t part of my regular diet repertoire, but I feel entitled to a treat or two after working my butt off before most people are awake. But I’m flabbergasted by the latest trend among the running pack: Junk food-laced races and beer-soaked marathons. More
We’ve taught you how to cook raw foods, choose a good organic wine, and shape up your healthy baking skills, and this week, we’ll even help you learn how to BIY with YourDailyThread’s home brewer Brent Fedor:
Why not? I love beer and I love cooking. It seemed like a no-brainer the day I flipped through SkyMall magazine and saw the Mr. Beer Home Brewing Kit. My eyes lit up like the Fourth of July and within just a couple weeks I had in my hands the best invention since fire. More
