Beer May Be for Amateurs...

...but ABCNews is reporting that beer can be good for you:
The news is good, particularly for baby boomers, many of whom are dealing with obesity and high blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

Alcohol, including beer, in moderation raises high-density lipoprotein or HDL, known as good cholesterol, says Dr. R. Curtis Ellison, chief of the section of preventive medicine and epidemiology and professor of medicine and public health at the Boston University School of Medicine. It also appears to have a favorable effect on the lining of blood vessels, making them less likely to form a clot or for a clot to rupture and plug an artery, and may help protect against Type 2 diabetes.
This study brought to you by Samuel Adams. ;)

And they say eating oat bran is good for you. I say drink in moderation boldly and watch your cholesterol levels drop in a good way.

I echo Scott's sentiment: drink in moderation boldly!

I prefer a good Stone Smoked Porter. Absolutely fantastic stuff.
