Would you buy a "nutritious" beer?

Now beer lovers may not have to justify having another drink — it may just be their daily dose of vitamins.

Mr. McGeasil Brewing, a new craft beer company in St. Paul, Minn., is announcing plans to make a “nutritious” beer, according to Paste Magazine. The beer would be similar to brews of yore; lower alcohol beers with a higher nutritional value, according to William Sweasy, co-founder of Mr. McGeasil. “They’ll be delicious, flavorful and a little better for you than the average beer,” Sweasy told Paste. “Egyptians had to drink beer to keep themselves alive.”

While Sweasy stayed mum on how exactly they would achieve such a beer beer, he did tell Paste that one beer might include flax seed, which is high in omega-3 fatty acid. The company is currently searching for a spot in Lowertown St. Paul that will be its future home, according to Paste. Future business plans will include a taproom, a coffee house and brewery.

We’ll drink to that.
