Papazian attacks the beer belly

Charlie Papazian is a founder of the American Homebrew Association and a powerful force behind the Brewers Association. As such, he has had a profound impact upon homebrewing and craft brewing since the legalization of homebrewing by Jimmy Carter in 1979.

He recently began blogging, and one of his posts addressed the lazy myth of the beer belly:

According to the U.S. government a 12 oz. serving of “regular” beer has less calories than 12 oz. of apple juice, orange juice, 2% milk and cola. If you are really serious about losing weight and don’t want to drink beer, then drink water.


Where the report refers to "regular" beer, keep in mind that beer of 7% alcohol by volume (abv), which is small by today's 'extreme-beer' standards, is itself 30% stronger than "regular" beer of 5% abv. Alcohol provides the greater share of calories in beer.

Be that as it may, long die the frumious slander of the beer belly!

Kudos! Mr. Papazian practices proper English usage and indents the first line of his paragraphs, a modern grammatical rarity. YFGF commends him and abashedly admits its own typographical sloth.
