To your health! Cooking with beer.

Although the Malt House doesn’t have a kitchen, chances are that the vast majority of you eat. And for those of us who not only pair beers with our food, but also cook with beer (and I don’t mean in the sense that a sloshed Julia Child cooked “with wine”), the following research may not be surprising.

An article in New Scientist reports a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that suggests that marinating meats in beer reduces the cancer-causing compounds created by the high heat of frying or grilling. (Wine works, too, but it’s less effective than beer in this respect.) Not only does beer make it taste better, it’s, repeat after me, good for you.

Bon appetit!
