If you’re looking to find the best selection of healthier-than-"fat-weiser" brands of suds, forget hitting the mass-market section of your supermarket beer aisle. Instead, says Matt Simpson of thebeerexpert.com, get a range of healthy options, from small-batch brands to even local breweries, at your nearest Whole Foods or other stores. Take a look at our all-American favorites.
This is the one beer we approve of with the word "light" in its name. “If you’re going to drink a macro-industrialized lager, drink this one," says Simpson. "It’s got ever-present flavor, and it’s all malt."
"This small brewery in South Carolina uses a little salt in the brewing process," Simpson explains. "This adds a savory dimension—almost like an umami to the palate. It’s very refreshing and even comes in cans."
"This American take on a Berliner Weisse is crisp, tart, and refreshing," says Simpson. "Peaches give it a light fruit aroma as well. It’s easy to drink, very dry, and great with cheeses, fruits, or salads."
