Beer often cops a bad rap in the press, it gets blamed for violence, accidents, stupidity, failing studies... well I guess it's not all unwarranted. Below though are some scientific reasons to grab a growler of beer from your favourite brewery and pour yourself a cool delicious glass of golden heaven.
1) Beer could potentially make you live longer...
2) Drinking beer can help you stay slim...
3) Beer can strengthen your heart...
A study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology that consisted of an analysis of 16 previous studies results with more than 200,000 participants found that people who drank about a pint of beer a day had a 31 percent reduced risk of heart disease.
A Harvard report also states that moderate consumption of alcohol reduces the risk of heart attacks or death caused by cardiovascular diseases by 25 to 40 percent. Researchers at The Harvard School of Public Health found that moderate consumption of beer helps in preventing blood clots that block blood supply to brain,heart and neck.
4) Beer helps to fight cancer
5) Beer keeps your brain sharp
6) Beer can increase bone strength and prevent kidney stones
So there you go, go put your feet up, pour yourself a beer and if someone questions you, tell them that the toast "to your health" exists for a reason (or 6)

So by now you’ve probably seen “cold drip” or “cold brew” coffee popping up in your local cafes. And now the latest craze of “nitro coffee” So what are they and why should you care?
We show you how to make your own cold brew coffee, nitro coffee and espresso martinis on TAP!
Launched in 2013 Tap King looked like being a decent option for people wanting to have beer on tap at home. After buying the plastic dispenser and a 3.2L disposable plastic bottles of a select range of beers you simply took them home, chilled them and then attached them to the dispenser to have beer on tap in the fridge.
On paper I'm sure their marketing team thought it sounded like a good idea. I don't know of a single beer drinker who wouldn't want "frosty cold, perfectly poured beer" on tap in their kitchen, bbq area or home bar.
