Pittsburgh, PA, October 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Moderation is key when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight and less than average midsection. This holds true for beer as well, and I.C. Light has done the best job of helping beer lovers cut down their “beer bellies” as well as provide other vital health benefits.
Pitted against 50 of the World’s most popular beers, including the largest 15 domestic breweries and largest five international breweries, I.C. Light came out on top in terms of “fewest calories and carbohydrates for the most amount of alcoholic punch - the best beer for your buzz,” as reported by The Daily Beast on October 19, 2010. Data from manufacturers and reliable third-party databases were used to generate accurate rankings.
“One drink a day for women and two for men can prevent diabetes, arthritis, arteriosclerosis and certain types of cancer. The hops, barley and yeast used to make beer also contains soluble fiber, probiotics and antioxidants,” as noted in the report.
“We spend so much time assuring that the quality of our products is paramount, said Ron Santillo, Director of Marketing at Iron City Brewing Company. “We are so proud to hear that not only does the taste of our product rank second to none, but being named the healthiest beer is just fantastic.”
