Muscle Food, a UK site selling sports nutrition products, has come up with the all-new "Barbell Brew". The beer claims to be rich in proteins and have fewer calories than lean beers.
This can be the most surprising sweet news for the gym goers who will be missing the beer to lose their weight.
It will be as easy as sliding the beer into your tummy as a muscle milk or that can of pure protein shake that you use while working out.
The new drink is full of energy with fewer calories and they are also free from gluten.
The Barbell Brew, the exclusive beer of the UK site has 3.6 percent alcohol and is a wheat beer. The company advertises it on the website as, "has notes of tropical fruits and light caramel on the nose... assertive, resinous hops, biscuit malt flavor... and an aggressive, dry and satisfying choppy finish." This surprise beer is made from Muscle Food brewery.
The drink, as they say, is full of proteins equal to that of three extra-large eggs or eight ounces of Greek Yogurt. To say the exact count as the maker mentions it, the beer contains 21.8 g of protein, according to Food & Wine.
One standard serving of the beer (i.e.) 330ml of drink contains calories as low as 92 and carbohydrates as low as 5 g. It is very less than the less calorie Amstel Light beer which has a calorie of 95 calories.
The price of this nutritious and delicious protein beer will be $22.24 in US dollars per pack which will have six packs each.
It is already been in the campaign by the health experts that beers are good for health when it comes to proteins and vitamin B contents. It is also good for increased brain function, heart health, or kidney stone prevention.
