I replaced my early evening beverage last week with a beer because it is a Nomad superfood. I looked it up in Typebase and it seems to cover all beer.

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?470

This week I'm replacing it with G-Tea (ginger/ginseng/ginko/green) to see if I notice a difference in how I feel.

My question:  Is it the fermentation/yeast component of beer that would make it good for us because it can be brewed from many different grains. That's what makes me raise an eyebrow.

I trust this information because it comes from Dr.D. I'm just curious what other Nomads have found? I'm talking strictly diet based physical aspects here not personal beliefs about consuming alchohol.  That's a whole different thing.

Specifically which brand of beer might be the best for a Nomad or the type... ale, lager and such?

Anyone have any ideas on this or first-hand knowledge? There are hundreds of brands of beer. I prefer a light lager with lots of lime juice added (both superfoods)

I'm curious to know more about beer, too.  I just thought it was the B vitamins in the stout beers that were so good for a person but there might be more to it than that.  I like Guiness Stout, myself.

Good question. I have yet to drink one yet.  But I'm gonna!  I'll probably start with Leinie's Honey Weiss, if they still make that.

I'm going to keep experimenting for the next few months drinking it at least once every couple of weeks (that's how often my husband and I go on dates) and see what I find.

Well I started to drink it in January after a 5 year teetotal spell. I decided that I would limit it to 2 or at most 3 a week with no more than 1 in any given night. That is a personal limit I set for myself, not a GTD recommendation. I'll give it a year and see what it does for me. I prefer a good german or mexican beer(in bottles only)and avoid beer that says weiss as that is german for wheat. Don't know that it makes any difference but I prefer barley beer, lagers or ales, don't care for porters or flavored beers myself.

it is called WeiŖbier, but weizen means wheat, cause the beer is made at least 50% of wheat, but is called WeiŖbier, meaning white.

My Nomad son likes Fat Tire.  It is a dark beer made with hops.

I hate beer.  I like white wine and rum (not mixed together though).

Okay I have a new word to add to my 20 words of spainish. I remember a year ago having to tell a immigrant worker that was watering a plant next to a live high voltage wire "no agua, carne muerte!" He said "Oh? No more Mexican?".

Like OH MY GOSH. I swear that's the kind I just drank today 1/2 bottle. It's too rich to finish but good. I had it in my fridge because it's my sister-in-laws favorite.  She just came to visit me in Tex from Ohio.  She said she can't find Fat Tire up there in Ohio. She was so happy.

Get otta town... that is kind of a rare beer for you to say that today is such a coincidence.

Hey GulfCoastGuy, have you noticed any difference?  My husband buys Corona or Sol or Dos Equis. I put lime juice in there. That's how I've been getting mine because he is a regular beer drinker on the weekends.

No I don't think he took not being fried personally especially after he saw me hunt down the careless electrician.

No idea about any difference since I started drinking beer again just yet. I do love the taste of a good beer though. I'm just very picky about the variety. Allways have been, Michelob for example will give me instant heartburn with just one sip.

yeah.. one size probably does not fit all. I wish we had deeper knowledge on the properties and the why's. I too have different reactions to different beers.  

Like "hey dude.. give me some more wheat juice" just doesn't seem right.

Yeah, especially because Nomads are supposed to be wheat free.  I didn't realize that Weiss meant wheat.  I may have to try something else.

But I don't know if drinking a liquified flavor of wheat is different than eating it.  I would think it's a little different.  You don't have the actual grain running through your bowels.

Oh, now I'm confused.  Anyways, I still have yet to get some beer.  But I think I'm getting closer.

I think it's the nutritional yeast in beer that has the beneficial properties. That's my unscientific deduction

I just thought it was the B vitamins in the stout beers that were so good for a person but there might be more to it than that.  I like Guiness Stout, myself.


The Vitamin B is from the yeast mainly. However, a British "Real Ale" straight from the cask is the better choice. Anything canned or bottled has been not only filtred but also pasteurized. Yeast is a living organism remember.
Barring the rare exception in US, you would need to brew your own for the max nutrition.
Also in US the common beers use adjuncts like Rice, Wheat, & ,unfortunatley, even more Corn.

I have.  I live in Beer capitol.  And there are actually some very good high end american brews.  Leinenkugels is one of them.  There are other smaller places you probably never heard of like, Sprecher and East Side Brewery.  Etc.  Some of the big companies even make a pretty good dark beer.  I think Michelob make's one if my memory serves me correct.

Okay, well, I grew up redneck and I guess I saw people (not my family, we didn't drink at all except my brother when nobody was looking) drink cheap stuff.  But still.....Down here it's different.

No, it's no different from the teenagers around here either when I grew up. At least I don't think so.  Cheap beer.  I remember the first sip I had I almost gagged.  Was my sister's friend.  They always bought the cheap stuff then.  But usually you mature and drink better beer.  Especially if you really want to get hammered.  Hehehehehhahahahaha.  Well it's true, a Guiness is a lot more potent than a regular Bud.  So that was a look into my pre Christian days for you. It wasn't pretty.
