There is no need to be worried about dehydration because beer is 93 percent water. Also, according to a Spanish study, beer may actually provide better hydration than water alone when you're sweating it out under the sun.

Calorie-wise, one may be tempted to grab a light lager, but a dark beer is the better choice for health benefits.

Dark beers tend to have the most antioxidants, which help reverse cellular damage that occurs naturally in the body.

Another good choice is microbrews, which are healthier than mass- produced cans, because they have more hops. Hops contain polyphenols, which help lower cholesterol, fight cancer and kill viruses.
