Korean Brewer: Drink Our Beer and Stay Regular

Drink beer? Having trouble staying regular? A Korean brewer might have just the ticket.

Hite Brewery says its new beer, named "S" -- you can figure out what that might stand for -- is fortified with dietary fiber. Hite says each 100 milliliters has 0.5 grams of fiber, so in a typical 330 milliliter bottle you would get the equivalent of two or three cucumbers or eight strawberries. There is no word on any plans to export the brew to the United States.

Each bottle of what Hite calls Stylish Beer with Fiber costs about 83-cents. But just remember the old saying: You don't buy beer, you really only rent it.
