Beer pick of the week: Go low carb

Keto/low carb is the key to a healthy life. But what about beer?  Rod Whitehead told me about the following low-carb options:

  • Shiner light blonde: 99 cal, 3.8 carbs, 4.2abv – local brewery, my absolute favorite light and my “daily drinker.” $13-14 for a 12-pack here.
  • Busch natural light: 95 cal, 3.2 carbs, 4.2abv – i cringe at recommending a national brand, but it’s the 2nd best I’ve found. 12-pack < $9 = my daily drinker when cash is tight.
  • Lone star light: 111 cal, 8.3 carbs, 3.85abv – fun bottle caps. 12-pack < $8
