My wife and I just started the Paleo diet (and I haven't had a beer since August 1). For those that are unaware, which I imagine is most of you, this is a diet without grains, legumes, processed sugars, and limited dairy. This is an oversimplification of this diet, though. For those that are aware of the details of this diet and the corresponding science behind it plus have strong knowledge of the science of brewing beer, is beer OK on this diet? I can't seem to find a good answer to this question on Paleo-related sites. I have done only a little homebrewing but certainly know that the actual grains don't go into the beer. I would think that the mashing process would eliminate the "bad stuff" that the Paleo geeks would find "harmful." Thoughts? P.S. I have no intention of eliminating beer entirely from my diet.
