6 Surprisingly Healthy Beers

Stock your six-pack with these beers for a side of health benefits with your buzz.

If you got a taste for hops, pale ales (usually known as India Pale Ales or IPAs) pack a hops punch that is usually 50 times stronger than your average beer. While more hops means more alcohol content, calories and carbs, it also means a higher content of polyphenols, an antioxidant that lowers cholesterol and fights cancer. Sierra Nevada is one of the most widely available pale ale brands on the market; just make sure to grab the standard edition, which contains a reasonable 175 calories, compared to Sierra Nevada IPA (231 calories) or worse, Sierra Nevada Bigfoot (a whopping 330 calories).
