Why spirits and not beers
Can anybody elaborate on this? Aren't all alcohol types poison ultimately?

What about wine?

Spirits: little to no calories, high %ABV so less is more-therefore you save money

Beer: Lots of calories so its easier to gain weight, low %ABV so you end up drinking more

Wine: low to medium %ABV, the antioxidants in wine allegedly are good for your heart

This is of course if you drink in moderation. Any alcohol in excess is poison and will damage your liver over time.

The info about calories isn't accurate. In a 50g shot of vodka there is about 100kcal, whislt a pint of beer contains 200kcal. Sprirts has the most calories, beers the least, and wine is inbetween.

I've always been under the understand Spirits are just simply "healthier" for you than beer is from a gluten free standpoint anyways.

I'm at the age though where any of the make me feel like shit the next day after drinking so I try to avoid it all.

Spirits from the calorie, carb, sugars, lack of estrogen standpoint. As far as stuff like reservitrol or whatever, maybe wine, but, spirits usually.

The meme about beer causing bitch tits ('specially craft IPAs) if very much so true.

Do yourself a favor, if drinking spirits do it with soda water, neat or on ice, or if you absolutely must diet soda.
