    Tasty, but not primal. What made you think that it might be?

    The taste!!!
    The good fuzzy feeling!!!
    Are you sure is not primal?
    Grok might have found some little pool in a cave where some wild wheat fell and fermented
    In that case it might be primal

    MDA" When it comes to alcohol itself, there’s no reason a low-carber can’t indulge. Alcohol isn’t metabolized as a carbohydrate product, and it doesn’t send your blood sugar shooting upward. (It might actually lower it.) The body sends alcohol to the liver where it becomes first in line as an active energy source rather than stored glycogen. As long as you aren’t looking to lose weight, a modest drink here or there shouldn’t make much of a difference. If you’re looking to lose weight, however, we’d suggest avoiding alcohol all together."

    When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
    27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

    Beer was the original agricultural product. It is the liquid version of bread, developed in Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization and agriculture.

    The alcohol content is not what is debated here. It's the rest of the carbs in the beer, and the wheat byproducts. Celiacs can't have beer made with barley or wheat, indicating that there are measurable grain products left in the beer. Averages 7-11 g carb in a 12 oz beer, unless it's a light beer.

    Calories in Beer, Beer Alcohol, Beer Carbohydrates.

    I'd say use it as part of your 20%. Do it with full understanding of it's possible effect on your body and your goals. In moderation and with great enjoyment.

    Prost!

    It contains wheat. Do you react to gluten?

    I have grown a taste for the gluten free beers. They are not nearly as offensive, I would say.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
    F/23/5'9"

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.
