Most people can agree that one of life's little luxuries is cracking open a cold one. 

For many of us with diabetes, though, beer drinking can be daunting. Beer is quite literally liquid bread (think: grains and yeast).

But these days, we've got plenty of low carb beer options to choose from! There are, of course, the obvious -- check out this list of 5 easy to find beers that are supremely low carb.

But if you're Michelob Ultra'd out (it is, after all, the original low carb beer), it's time to start testing the more unique, local, craft brewed ones. And these days, there are tons of low carb craft beers to try.

The craft beer industry is booming, which means now, more than ever, you can find local, unique, tasty, and low carb beers wherever you are. 

You'll notice that most of these beers are light in color. For good reason! The darker the beer, the higher the carb count tends to be. Stick to the light (in color) beers to keep blood sugars stable!
