As I've shifted to drinking more beer and less wine, my taste in beer is getting more expensive. I'll go for a Stella Artois or Guinness or Chimay or Trumer Pils rather than the Great American Beers of old. Turns out the by-product of beer drinking is a beer belly (are you as shocked as me?) and I need to take action. I'm in the market for a decent light beer. Alas, Whole Foods disappoints in this category. They do not stock Sapporo Light or Samuel Adams Light, for example, and none of the regional or microbrews seem to be available in light versions.
My friend Chaos, who aided and abetted the development of my beer palate, pointed out that Trumer Pils is only 150 calories a bottle! That's not many calories more than shitty beer! Yippee for me. Problem solved. Okay, no, the beer belly problem isn't actually solved. Baby steps.
