Everybody has different body chemistry will drinking 1 beer inflame your gout maybe maybe not, but unless you want the pain I wouldn’t risk it unless you just really want a beer.

Gout is exacerbated by the consumption of alcohol so I would refrain if you want less pain.

What are some slang terms only British people would understand, and what do they mean?

  • Beers with the boys: any number of alcoholic beverages totalling under nine per person. "We had beers with the boys last night, it was only supposed to be a couple drinks, but after the snakebite showed up it was undoubtedly beers with the boys."
  • A couple drinks: at least four drinks. "We had a couple drinks last night. We were only going to have one beer, but it became a couple drinks."

What is the correct temperature for beer? Or wine. Or pop? Please

Hi Laraine:
- If you're British, warm. Canadian, wet. Otherwise, who cares?
- white - chilled, red - warm. If you're Canadian, wet.
-Pop - cold, but if you're Canadian, stick to beer and wine so....... Who cares?

Does this effect gout sufferes

It seems to me that the jury is still out... if you ask gout sufferers, they swear that asparatame sweetners such as are in diet soda makes gout worse. However, if you read the latest studies published in the British Medical Journal say: "data suggest that consumption of sugar sweetened soft drinks and fructose is strongly associated with an increased risk of gout in men. Furthermore, fructose rich fruits and fruit juices may also increase the risk. Diet soft drinks were not associated with the risk of gout". So they are clearly blaming sugar and fructose which is in regular soda pop.

The good news is that the risk of gout was found to be lower in individuals with higher vitamin C intake.

What special diet can be used to prevent the Gout for Diabetes 2 ?

From Wikipedia: "Dietary causes account for about 12% of gout, and include a strong association with the consumption of alcohol, fructose-sweetened drinks, meat, and seafood. Other triggers include physical trauma and surgery. Studies in the early 2000s have found that other dietary factors once believed associated are, in fact, not, including the intake of purine-rich vegetables (e.g., beans, peas, lentils, and spinach) and total protein. With respect to risks related to alcohol, beer and spirits appear to have a greater risk than wine. The consumption of coffee, vitamin C and dairy products, as well as physical fitness, appear to decrease the risk. This is believed partly due to their effect in reducing insulin resistance."

I have heard of food pairing with wine, but can I also pair foods with certain beers?

Pairing food with beer can add a dimension to your meal that can be very pleasing. I will attach a link that is worth reading. It provides some tips on how to properly pair certain dishes with particular beer styles successfully to bring out the best in each.


What temperature should beer be at for drinking?

Each style of beer has a certain guideline for suggested drinking temperatures. Here are a few:

- Wheat beer and pale lager= 45-50F
- Pale ales and amber/dark lagers= 50-55F
- Dark ales, porters, stouts= 55-60F
- Fruit beers= 40-50F

What is the shelf-life of beer?

Beer does not spoil in the same ways as other drinks. When a beer spoils, the taste characteristics change, not so much the texture. Most beers retain their quality for about 6 months. If stored properly, it should still taste good for an additional 4-6 months.

What is a flavored malt beverage?

These are drinks made in a brewery but aren't like beer. They get flavor from added ingredients and not from being fermented. They are sold like beer and have similar alcohol content. They taste more like soft drinks.
