    Doubt it going to effect beer consumption much, if any, but these are interesting facts.

    None of the "beers" shown are on my drinkable list. Stick to smaller craft breweries is my motto.

    The hybridization of corn pre-dates the 'discovery' of the Americas by the Vikings.  The present technology is simply a modern refinement of ancient techniques - nothing to get one's panties in a wad over ...  unless, of course, you are one of those so very many sad individuals who takes perverse pleasure from wallowing in 'concerns' raised by others with hidden agendas.
     
    I, for one, am happy that I no longer have to shuck corn in the grocery or farmers' market to check for worms! 
     
    Frack the fields and, if it 'concerns' you, give the cows some Beano; somehow I believe we'll all be the better for it.

    ~~"First of all, I was able to obtain a baseline list of “legal” additives allowed in beer from the book “Chemicals Additives in Beer” by the Center of Science and Public Interest"~~
     
    The CSPI is not to be taken as credible and are also known as the "Food Police". This entire report by the "food babe" has been discredited but I'm too lazy, or is it indifferent, to bother to find the link.

    Ditto and the only sane comment here. Water, malted barley, yeast and hops are the only proper ingredients in beer.

    Not if you buy wine from reputable vineyards.........especially if you know the owner and/or winemaker.  I know that my friends at many, many vineyards in CA do not add nitrates.

    If I recall correctly, if it contains Nitrites, it needs to be listed on the label?

    Nothing shocking about the ingredients in any beer. That article was bunk.

    Beware. All of those, and many other beers, contain an amount of dihydrogen monoxide that, if inhaled in gaseous form, can easily cause death.

    Most wines also contain sulfites. But, they're listed on the labels.

    Much ado about nothing.  The large majority of Americans don't like the taste of beer that doesn't contain either rice or corn adjuncts.
    I'm surprised the article doesn't lament the use of beechwood in Budweiser.

    Well, at least I provoked some lively discussion that created some new knowledge for all of us.
    So, I'll just keep wishing I could get my favorite hometown brew out here in AZ!

    I just checked my 4 liter jug of Carlo Rossi's "Paisano". 
     
    Sure enough, it - despite being labelled '100% Grape Wine' - does contain sulfites.  Maybe that's why it is so tasty over ice!

    I'm shocked Americans easily accept rice and corn, GMO or not, and I feel struck down by the silver bullet. " />  I say quit pizzing on the ancient art of brewing and drink ice tea if you want to quench your thirst!
     
    There is a reason for the renaissance of craft brewing and over 2,800 breweries vs. less than a 100 in the '70's. There are a lot of people who appreciate good beers. My afternoon yesterday was spent drinking a Bitteshlappe on draft in the Excelsior Brewing Tap Room.

    (Had to think for a second). 

    But could either ride a horse and govern Texas? 
     
    We'd put Franken in charge of the gorilla cage in the Dallas Zoo and see if he could replicate his most famous film role. 
     
    If Jesse Ventura comes to testify in his chickensh*t lawsuit against widow Kyle he'd better be wearing a "Hurt Locker" suit and be surrounded by security.

    One of the reasons for the renaissance of craft brewing in the US is the break from the tyranny of the reinheitsgebot. American craft brewers have even gone to Germany to show brewers there the beauty of brewing with other ingredients. It is a slow process, to be sure, but in the end everyone wins!
