A British person once told me that it is possible for a person to live on Guiness beer alone.
Based on your knowledge, is it true?
I like a cold pint of Guiness on occasion especially on a hot summer day in the backyard.

I used to brew my own beer..........In Ireland

I imagine if the beer has not been filtered then a person could sustain life on stout. It would have the barley, hops, sugars and other stuff in suspension so it could sustain life. Maybe for a long time. Personally I would not try it.
