Hoist a Beer or Two for the San Antonio Food Bank During the 11th Annual San Antonio Beer Festival on Oct. 15


Many people may not realize that beer can actually be good for you, so long as it is not over-consumed. The healthful benefits of beer include anti-cancer properties, decreased risk of cardiovascular diseases, increased bone density, prevention of dementia and coronary disease, digestive system support, anti-ageing properties, as well as treatment for diabetes, gallstones, kidney stones, osteoporosis and hypertension, according to Organic Facts (www.organicfacts.net).

Here’s a great reason to share a pint or two with friends, while also benefiting the San Antonio Food Bank.
