Supplemental Brewing Protein Beer
No longer do you have to make the choice between a protein shake and few beers! The question is, would you knock back a couple of Brewtein beers post-workout?

Beer isn't the best thing for your body, we know.

Beer also isn't the worst thing you could have on a Tuesday night after a hard day at work, on a hot summer day while relaxing with your squad, etc.

If only there was a way to kick back some brews without feeling like you just undid a week's worth of work at the gym...

Stop drinking? Nonsense. Do you even crack beers open, bro?

There's nothing worse than the guilt of empty calories consuming you the same way you just did those couple beers. We get it. You get it. So why hasn't anyone done anything about it yet?

Actually, Blake Konrardy just has (or is trying to):

Protein Beer Video (2:36):

Meet Supplemental Brewing's Brewtein, the fitness-friendly American Wheat Ale fortified with 7g of whey protein and only 13g of carbs. Its counterpart the NutriBeer weighs in at about half the protein and carbs with only 122 calories per bottle. 

A more in-depth description about both beers can be found on the company's Kickstarter page:

Brewtein has a greater protein content than any other beer in existence, packed with 7 grams of whey protein. But you wouldn’t know it from the taste. Brewtein is categorized as an American Wheat ale, with a fairly light body, refreshing wheat flavor, and a clean finish. Best served cold straight out of the bottle or can, or in a glass with a lemon wedge

NutriBeer, our lighter, low carb beer, is made for the fitness-minded drinker seeking to limit calorie intake. NutriBeer fits into the classic light lager style, with a light, crisp body, subtle citrus flavor, and smooth finish. Best served ice cold.

The question remains: will it be good enough to buy and try, or does it get a hard pass? If you're curious enough you can back Supplemental Brewing's Kickstarter here, hit them up on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram.

Hmmm good question it would have to taste more like a beer instead of a thick scoop of protein and already come pre mixed because i dont like tasting a flat beer. But definitely worth the try so YESSS!!

When do you drink anything less than a six pack!? At 7grams per beer, I am up to 42grams for a six pack, that is more than my protein shake!! Solid idea, question is, will my gym let me bring it in?

Protein content isn't all that impressive but would definitely help out with the guilt! Ha I'd give it a try at the right price
