UK online fitness shop Muscle Food’s Barbell Brew isn’t just high protein – it’s also low carb and low calorie. It’s all natural, and touts a 3.6% ABV – the same as the average imperial pint of any other lager. It has 21.8 grams of protein, about the same as a serving of Greek yogurt, and only two grams less than a 3 oz. serving of steak. All that, and only 92 calories. That’s basically the same as drinking a protein shake, right?
It claims to be “thirst quenching,” and has “notes of tropical fruits and light caramel on the nose.” Its light golden color carries a delightfully assertive hop flavor, but the unique protein structure gives it an interesting sweetness.
Muscle Food spent three months perfecting and taste-testing Barbell Brew before launching in the UK this week. As Muscle Food’s Darren Beale says,
“Never before has anyone been able to claim that drinking a six-pack will help you get a six-pack and we’re delighted to have finally achieved just that.”
