Beer is a beloved drink the world over, more than often hailed as equal to Ambrosia, the “brew of the Gods”. It is unfortunate that more often than not, beer gets associated only with beer bellies and heart trouble when health and fitness comes into the equation. The reality is that the right kind of beer in moderation can actually have many positive benefits, like clear arteries, reduced stress and clot prevention. So the next time you feel the thirst for a beer in Columbus, Georgia, just take a look at some new options.
Pale lagers are the most ubiquitous beers drunk all over the world. But micro- brewed craft and stout beers are fast increasing in popularity. The upside with these micro-brewed spirits is that in addition to superlative and often unique tastes, they also often provide additional benefits through the presence of beneficial phenols and polyphenols. When looking for great quality beer, look out for the following brews and their kind:
Guinness Draught: the eternal St. Patty’s Day favorite, this low-carb and low-cal super dark Irish staple is delicious and packed with highly beneficial phenols.
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale: this is a compromise of sorts. Its high hops content means higher carbs and alcohol content, but on the bargain, you also get much higher polyphenol content. Just keep a watch on the number of drinks if on a diet.
Sam Adams Light Lager: this is one brew that goes to great lengths to maintain a superior taste while cutting down on carbs and calories. This is a highly recommended diet beer.
Abita Purple Haze: fruit infused beers like these offer a different and flavorful beer experience. Added fruit means more vitamins and nutrients. The low carb content is an added bonus.
That rounds off our short list of some of the more interesting diet beer options out there. The next time you get the urge to down a pint of beer, check out the great selection of such craft, draught and lager beers at B. Merrell’s of Columbus, Georgia.

B. Merrell has an extraordinary selection of delicious beers from around the world. The beers on this menu range from popular international brands to little known, favorite national brands. These beers are meant to be tasted and doing so is strongly encouraged. No beer lover should miss having this many options in one place. However, the importance of enjoying these selections safely cannot be stressed enough. Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcoholic beverages presents many dangers. There is no point in testing out all of these rich flavors without having a chance to come back and do it again.
The biggest risk of driving after drinking is death. That is, the death of another person or the death of the drunk driver. Unfortunately, one drunk driving event is enough to kill several people. Alcohol, which beer contains plenty of, impairs judgment, reduces reaction time, impairs coordination and can even make a person black out behind the wheel. This puts the driver and everyone else on the roads he or she is taking at risk of death or personal injury.
Even taking the worst-case scenario down a notch, there are still some pretty steep potential consequences. Thousands of dollars worth of damage can be inflicted on vehicles. It is not unheard of for tens of thousands of dollars of damage to be caused by drunk drivers, either. A person who is drinking and operating a motor vehicle is responsible for any and all damage caused by an accident. That includes homes, businesses, public property and anything else that happens to be in the way of the vehicle.
Say a person has a great time and tries out plenty of beers from the B. Merrell selection and then gets in the car without hitting a single thing. This sounds better, right? Well, there are still potential consequences. Law enforcement officers are charged with protecting people from drunk drivers. A driver who is pulled over after having a few beers can be arrested, have their license revoked, their car impounded and can even spend time in jail. The fines for such an infraction are astronomical. It just plain is not worth it.
The bottom line is, drink responsibly. Absolutely try these different brands of beer in Columbus, Georgia on for size and have a good time doing it. However, if you have enough to put you over the legal limit, have someone else do the driving. Even ask a friendly staff member to order a cab. That does not inconvenience anyone. In fact, it ensures that a good time ends on a good note.
