Food blogger Vani Hari's husband's favorite drink is beer and, just in time for his birthday this week, she is launching an online petition to ask the two biggest producers of American beer to list all their ingredients and brewing methods.

Hari claims some beers contain additives like high-fructose corn syrup, stabilizers and artificial flavoring, which have been linked to obesity, allergies, hyperactivity and gastrointestinal problems. She also alleges that big brewers use unappetizing things like propylene glycol a foaming ingredient found in airplane deicing liquid and even use fish swim bladders during brewing for clarity.

Any chance we can declare a moratorium on these "news" (not) posts?

I would like to know what I'm drinking in my beer with all chemicals they put in drinks these days. I think the european beers are more pure and alot less chemicals. I drink mainly beer but after reading this I'm going switch to something else like Whiskey.

I would expect to find fewer strange ingredients in beer made by smaller companies. Think Craft beer or Microbrew.

Yeah, and all beer contains something found in paint, hair dye, ketchup, insecticide and toilet bowl cleaner. Not only is it found in fish bladders, fish actually sh*t, p*ss and swim in it. You guessed it, there's WATER in beer!

Depends on what you mean by strange ingredients. I would expect the opposite since Miller & Anheuser Busch are under for more scrutiny than craft beer companies.

I'm pretty sure I read that at the beginning of the year Miller started labeling nutrition in their 64 beer, before this lady started asking around.

And by the way, I know for sure some euro beers use "fish bladder" (isinglass) as a clarifying agent, that has been around for a looong time.
