I say experiment with different brews and insulin amounts and find the balance. It's worth it. I mean come on...Chimay or Michelob Ultra? ....Duvel or Coors Light?...its like comparing leather boots to flip flops.
I live in San Diego, arguably the finest micro brew beer town in the US. Double IPAs are my favorite. I am a beer lover and a bit of a beer snob. I have gotten a lot better at guessing how much insulin to take for certain beers, but I still mess up sometimes. Oh well...the beer in me usually makes it easy to forgive myself. Just take a bolus shot, check often, and keep the glucose tabs handy.
If I am held down against my will and forced to drink a Bud Light, I find that it does little to my blood sugar...and even less on my taste buds. Sam Adams and Amstel Light are tastier options.
BTW - if you like Belgian I recommend Trader Joe's 2008 Vintage Ale...not a true Belgian but a fine effort and a reasonably priced holiday ale. CHEERS:)
