Beer Drinking & Your New Year's Resolution


It’s that time when many of us resolve to make some changes in the New Year. According to a 2015 Nielsen survey, the most aspired goals are to (1) Stay fit and healthy (2) Lose weight (3) Enjoy life to the fullest (4) Spend less, save more and (5) Spend more time with family and friends.

At first glance, not all of these aspirations seem to fit in neatly with a Beer Drinker’s lifestyle…but fear not, at First Draft we have you covered - no matter your resolution!

Stay Fit and Healthy

Beer can be consumed as part of a healthy diet. Runner's World has highlighted some evidence that moderate beer consumption has positive effects on the body, what with 90% water and 4 grams of protein! “Alcohol consumption in general are an association with lowered incidence of gallstones, decreased risk of Type 2 diabetes, and improved cognitive function in older adults.” Show off that flashy brain power at Monday Night Trivia with Geeks Who Drink!

Lose Weight suggests one of the reasons most diets fail is because of the “all or nothing” mentality. “One small diet deviation triggers thoughts like, ‘Well, I blew it, I might as well go all out!’ which keeps you stuck. If you’re worried about overdoing it, allow yourself small splurges…” Like just pouring a few ounces instead of a whole beer!

We’ll feature one beer each day during January as part of our #Beer30 diet. Come try a little and stick with your goals!

Enjoy Life to the Fullest
