There's nothing like a nice cold brew after some lawn work in the summer heat. But too much drinking can sabotage your diet (they don't call it a beer belly for nothing). Still, you don't have to deprive yourself to stay in tip-top shape. Certain low-calorie beers, in moderation, actually have health benefits, like lowering the risk of heart disease and hypertension.
Our partners at Greatist recently rounded up 10 healthy beers that won't sidetrack your health goals. Whether you're into ale, lager or stout, you can enjoy a drink this summer. Just remember, moderation means one to two beers for guys. Too many keggers and the gut is still on you.
