I know I am biased and have brought up Guinness a few times, but I came across this infographic from the team at GoIreland.com and couldn’t pass it over. Focusing primarily on calorie count, it has a few interesting facts and does a great job with the visual representation of a couple of my favorite beers.
We at GoIreland have rustled up a useful infographic about Guinness and other beers. But not just any infographic about booze. We recognize that folks in the 21st century are more health conscious than ever, so have combined these two facets to look at the health benefits of Guinness vs. other types of beer.
Whether you enjoy the dark stuff, or lean towards lager, the results show that a pint of one, or the other, can have positive effects on various areas of the body, such as the heart, bones and even your skin. Through painstaking research, we even worked out how many individual peanuts each drink is the equivalent to eating, how long it would take to burn off those calories and taken a look at some of the strongest beers known to mankind.
I was not sure where they got their numbers for the countries that consume the most/least amount of beer, until I had a look around and realized it is litres per capita PER WEEK. For anyone who is curious, Canada falls somewhere in the middle at about 3.7L/week.
I may have chosen a few different examples for the “Regular Beers”, but love this new way to look at what is usually pretty standard, boring nutritional information.
How do you think your favorite brew stack up against these?
