I have heard that this is true. I think it is. But I would say that only one beer at most a day. Honestly, I would say even less like one every other day. And I would think that a darker, more naturally made beer would be healthier. Certainly I can't see the health benefits of a Bud Light. But I can understand if Guiness or Homebrews would be better for your system. Now if you are asking if it is better for the soul.....then yes! joke joke :-)

Fresh brewed beer is good for the system and especially for the kidneys. It clears the stones in the bladder. But too much of it is also not good. I have heard doctors advising people to drink beer after they've had a stone clearance from their bladders or livers.
Beer is made from the hop plant and yeast and contains both macronutrients (carbohydrates and protein) and micronutrients (vitmins B6, B12, and folate, and antioxidents), Unlike wine, beer is low in sugar content although, depending on the type of beer, the alcohol content may be higher than that in wine. Low-moderate drinkers of beer have been shown to have fewer heart attacks and strokes than non-drinkers or heavy drinkers of any alcoholic drink. This may be due to the folate lowering the level of homeocystine in the body - high levels of homeocystine, which is either caused by or associated with inflammation, substantially raise the risk of heart attack.
Alcohol itself in low or moderate amounts also appears to lower heart attack and stroke risk, and to raise HDL (commonly known as 'good' cholesterol). Red wine is also said to be healthy in moderate amounts, but the added sugar in wine possibly mens that beer is the better drink from a health perspective.

In fact I have read papers about the effect of drinking on reducing heart disese. I also read a papar about xanthohumol (part of the hops that make beer) and how they can inhibit the growth of cancer tumours.
So in answer to your question drinking beer has health benifits. But that is no excuse for being drunk or any of the things associated with drunkeness.
