So far, they have found that many refermented and specialty beers contain Folate, a B vitamin that helps people rebuild cells and help avoid diseases like cancer and anemia. One scientist on the team stated that they wanted to "rehabilitate beer as a daily beverage to be consumed in moderation," just as wine is. We'll keep you posted as we do beer research of our own.
