Beers for Summer

Sponsored by Beer The Beautiful Truth

Summer is upon us, and all year you’ve told yourself that your body would be beach ready come December. Taking care of your body only gets more complicated once the festive season arrives; balancing what you eat, drink, whatever it is, we’re all in the same boat.

With the ‘silly season’ in full swing and general beer consumption (Leo dad bods) on the rise, it’s good to be aware of a handful of beers that are on average 99.9% sugar-free, with relatively little carbs and no preservatives – and don’t forget to watch the calories! Just like your shredding diet, moderation remains the key – it’s what you eat, along  with regular activity.

Get your head around these beers for summer.
