This is pretty crazy, but did you know beer isn’t just a drink to make your date look just a little cuter? You may not be a beer drinker, but here’s something that just might change your mind.

Beer actually contains a surprising amount of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber!

That’s right, so next time you’re at happy hour, don’t be so hesitant to grab a brew.

A standard 12-ounce lager contains 1 gram of fiber, with dark beers containing just a little over that. That 12-ounce beer also happens to contain more calcium, magnesium, and selenium than a serving of wine.

Oh, and even crazier, the yeast, hops, and grains that make beer… beer, contain B vitamins and even potassium.

Not bad right? Just enjoy in moderation to make sure that belly stays nice and tight.

Happy National Beer Day! Think you know beer? This might surprise you.
