It’s often been said that milk does the body good, but several nutritional and scientific studies have proven the exact opposite. In fact, pasteurized, homogenized, factory farm milk does far more harm than good to the body, and can contribute to a variety of health issues, some of which can be chronic. Surprisingly, beer can do the body a lot more good than genetically modified milk can, and the best part is that it won’t taste like unchecked animal cruelty, artificial ingredients, and other potentially harmful additives and things that make you go hmmm. But as you already know, or should already know, not all beer is created equal.
Some beers, especially those bought in the store, can be just as bad for you as milk. Have you ever heard the saying that if you want something done, you just need to do it yourself? Well, this exact sentiment can be applied to brewing your own beer. It might sound a bit scary at first, but imagine how great it would feel to turn up on a beverage that actually isn’t all that bad for you. Craft beers aren’t anything new, as people have been brewing their own beers for thousands of years. Recently however, a resurgence of interest in home brewing has taken the nation by storm, and it’s pretty easy to see why.
