Beer & polyphenols

    To cover this up front I am not a beer drinker.

    I am witnessing a large percentage of hops being added to beers.

    The nearest city to me is Austin Tx. Alcohol and beer consumption is sky high in that city.

    Is the hoppy craze related to the polyphenols in the hops?

    Would it be reasonable to assume this consumption will continue and possibly even increase?

    * - Full disclosure - This does related to potential business choices that I'll detail in my own journal. I'm aware of the fact that there are many here with serious health issues trying to get answers.

    If this is inappropriate here and would be better suited for a Q&A please let me know and I will delete this. I just had an unexpected amount of fun with the wine webinar and this is slightly related.

    Wine webinar was before deuterium entered the scene.
    And the desirable vines had deuterium advantage.

    Agreed and why I'm not a beer drinker.

    The way it is going instead of drinking beer we are going to drink fat.
    Since the desirable range now is (125 - 95)ppm
    we have to be careful with butter.

    Pork otoh is better as long as it is grass fed.

    As one who used to like beer almost as much as Judge Kavanaugh, I must say the super hoppy ones provide a refreshing, citrusy bitterness and fragrance. Regular ales and lagers are just bland in comparison. They tend to be much higher in alcohol content too which certainly contributes to their popularity.

    But yeah, I like that polyphenol theory! :whistle:

    I somehow haven’t gotten to the wine webinar yet. Which month/year is it? (And is there a webinar index somewhere I’m missing?)
