This post is something near and dear to my heart, beer. We’ve all heard about the fantastic antioxidants in red wine; namely resveratrol. However, beer has the potential to equal or exceed red wine in antioxidant potential. We’re not talking about your mass produced “Lite” beers. No, we’re talking extremely hoppy and dark beers with robust and bitter tastes. I would tell you to stop reading now if, unlike me, you make a sour face at seeing, smelling and tasting such things as stouts, porters, strong IPA’s, cloudy unfiltered brews and their ilk. However, like red wine there may be an alternative in supplement form.
