Not sure if they are an actual store or just an online place.

Oak Tree Discount Wine and Spirits Complete Inventory List (http://www.oaktreewines.com/InventorySearchBeer.aspx - broken link)

This place is awesome - South Plainfield actually. I will be stopping there on my way home from work today to stock up for the weekend. Probably spend a half hour or so browsing the wine and beer selections. It's incredible the different beers they stock.

I'm not much of a beer person but I like to have a Corona every now and again when it's hot outside.

Kinda hard to recommend a certain beer over another on the basis of health. They're all made from the same basic ingredients: water, yeast, grains. As long as you stay out of the high end category (all those nice craft brew bottles for $10+), you'll probably stay below your limit of 6.5 abv without even trying.

I think it's be fun to just experiment with different styles in your quest to drink 1 or 2 a day.

Stay away from the light beers. It's not worth the taste sacrifice for the lower calories.

I so agree.

I'm inclined to say stick to one a day. Depending on your body weight and metabolism, two might be over the line. Consider a routine of one a day, and then you're free to add another one if socially called for. The fact that you want two, suggests that you have a desire for them beyond the medical benefit, and you're at risk of regularly going over.

And I agree with the advice to stay away from lite. Drink the best beer that you truly like, at least get the pleasure with your medicine.

Oh this is so true..

My bf is all into those Michelob 55's so the calorie count won't mess with his training/exercise routine, n I'm all like damn come on, let me buy you to some good beer already!

I would rather not drink that day than drink that!

Any European full bodied beer is good for me.

Fat Tire has become my daily beer. It's not the best but I find it both affordable and drinkable.

If cost weren't an issue I'd rotate through a variety of offerings by Rogue, Stone, and Lagunitas.

Love that beer but at 8.5%ish ABV, probably not what the OP was looking for.

Depending on taste, there are many options. English milds tend to be lower in alcohol, but high in flavor. I don't know nutrition info, though. Moderation is key.

You don't have to drink the lowest common denominator beer and give up taste and flavor. American macro lagers are mostly brewed with corn and/or rice. Obviously they have to also contain malted barley by law. Don't buy into "frost brewed" or "triple hops brewed" nonsense.

Of course, if you like that garbage, be my guest...
