Vanilla Stout from Saranac Brewery

By Rick

Beer is good food!  I was looking for a healthy snack the other night.  And an apple just wasn't going to do it.

So, I reached into the beer fridge and pulled out a Saranac Vanilla Stout.  As I'm sure younz guyz already know, stout beer has less calories than most other GOOD beers.  Stouts, porters and barley wines are also said to help fight against osteoporosis.

My Saranac Vanilla Stout constitutes a healthy snack!

It's a nice dark brown with a frothy head.  The subtle sweetness of the vanilla balanced the typical stout aftertaste.

To make this a completely healthy snack, I paired it with dark chocolate.  Yum!  Dark chocolate, as you know, contains anti-oxidants which is the current buzz word for any health enthusiast.

Saranac Brewery has so many cool beers.  They're brewed by the Matt Brewing Company of Utica, NY.  Visit their website to find out more.  Vanilla Stout is 4.8% ABV.

So, health fans, what could be more healthy than a Vanilla Stout and dark chocolate before bedtime?

Sweet dreams!
