High Protein Beer: Another Excuse for Drinking!
I don’t get excited by much these days, but I have to say I was pretty stoked to see these two unique offerings from Supplemental Brewing; Brewtein, a tasty wheat ale with 7g of protein, and NutriBeer, a refreshing light lager with 4g of protein.
Here’s the breakdown for Nutribeer…
Is That a Lot of Protein?
To put things in perspective, you really need to see how much protein regular beer contains.
This chart will help with that…
As you can see, the light beer (Nutribeer) contains 4 times as much protein as regular light beers, and the “regular” Brewtein, contains 3.5 times as much.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you should pound back 5 Brewteins instead of your post-workout shake.
It does mean, however, that your beer can now be factored into your daily protein requirements.
And of course, it will be easier to justify your alcohol consumption. 🙂
How cool is that?
High Protein Beer: It’s What’s for Breakfast!
When he reached out, Blake Konrardy from Supplemental Brewing told me…
“Conventional wisdom says beer and fitness don’t go together, but that’s about to change.”
Trust me when I say this, Blake.
In fact, I think can speak for all of us.
Men and women.
Those who love beer.
And working out.
Now, we don’t have to choose.
And for that, we salute you.
P.S. Supplemental Brewing just launched their KickStarter campaign. If you want to get in on the action, you can chip in here!

But what do these brews taste like? Personally, I’m a big fan of our Pacific Northwest microbrews, so if these resemble more conventional beers (e.g. Coors; Miller), it’s gonna take more than a few grams of added protein to win me over.
