For all you beer lovers, have a look at the five beer myths busted!
1. Beer gives ‘beer belly’
NO, it doesn’t! Moderate consumption has no ill effect on ones health. Excessive drinking may lead to weight gain but that is the case with every other drink as well ain’t it?
2. Ice-cold beer be best!
Not necessarily. It depends on the type of beer. Some should be served cold and others a bit warmer. The variance is for people to enjoy the beer and its ingredients better, which for sure doesn’t always mean ice cold.
3. Darker is better.
Honestly, colour of the beer doesn’t determine if the beer is strong or not. It is just an indicative of its flavour and that’s all. Few blonde beers are stronger as well. In the end it is just about the preference.
4. Beer tastes bitter.
Beer has a vast variety of flavours and types that it just isn’t fair to generalise them all as bitter. There are beers with sweeter and fruity tastes as well. This myth is generated due to lack of tasting and pre-conceived notions. Not all of them are bitter.
5. All beers contain added preservatives.
Nope. They simply don’t need them. Their key components hop and alcohol already ensure the freshness and longer shelf life. So beers are free from additions.
With these common myths busted, enjoy it to the T with Brisky and sate you beer appetite.
