According to experts, the “beer belly” appears due to the effect of this drink on a person’s appetite. The specific bitterness of beer, which is caused by the bitter substances of hops and the tannin components of hops and malt shells, promotes a person’s appetite. Therefore, he eats more snacks than necessary. In order not to gain weight, it is necessary to control this process. And if you drink beer with a small amount of snack or without it at all, then you should not be afraid of obesity.
Experts also told which snacks are best for certain types of beer. For example, Gouda cheese goes well with light tart beer, and chili flavored chocolate with dark, in particular stout.
