Brewer calls for beer benefits study

A Scottish brewer has called on the government to fund an independent study to look at the impact of drinking moderate amounts of beer.

Gerald MichalukGerald Michaluk, managing director of the Arran Brewery, believes there should be a public-funded study into whether drinking beer can be good for you.

The Herald Scotland reports that Michaluk said: “I have heard both sides of the argument from those with a vested interest in the anti-drink lobby and the drinks industry.

“But the truth is out there and it needs to be uncovered by independent professionals not associated with either the drink or anti-drink lobby.

“We need to know what the facts are and separate them from all the faith and fiction surrounding the health benefits of beer consumption, hence my call for research that gets to the truth.”

Michaluk added that according to alcohol expert Gene Ford, who wrote the book The Science of Healthy Drinking, moderate beer drinking can help to reduced risk of heart disease, blood clots, certain forms of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
