Why anyone would do what the government or their organizations suggests is beyond me. They are idiotic and have proven themselves to be useless and controlling. Use your brain!

Who listens to the government? I will not be micromanaged by an entity that doesn’t know science/common sense to back up their claims

Good for you. Two to 3 six packs a week sounds about right.

Thumbs down Alcohol consumption

This did come from our government agency because that is the recommended in Canada. I would be out of luck by 5:30 on Monday if that was the start of the week. Google it, it’s there.

Well, I am so thankful that we have the government looking out for us. How would we ever run our lives without those smart people in government assisting us with even the smallest (but quite important) decisions. I personally don't think we give them enough in the way of taxes - they deserve a raise for all the good they do for us. Now, I'm off to get my 6th booster shot. </sarc>

Beer Shots! We had those in college during happy hour at the local bar. 10-20 in an hour.

I agree & disagree with that but what about all the other things they say we shouldn’t drink or eat that we’ve heard over the years?

3.4oz? No, but I still have a 1oz souvenir mug from one particularly raucous company outing at the old "Explorer's Club" in Disney's "Pleasure Island". Unfortunately, like beer and other wonderful things we used to be able to enjoy, Pleasure Island is no more. Now it's just a shopping center for Disney swag and they call it "Disney Springs".

Kungaloosh!

Apparently? Really! What are your sources - The Daily Mail, a British tabloid or worse yet, the New York Post, a joke of a "news" source. Canada has a similar suggestion for drinking but it has to do with weight control. Post something of substance next time.

I’ve been following this guidance even closer much of the year. My consumption of Budweiser products has been ZERO.

Two beers a week, two beers a day, Two beers and hour. If you drink enough beer it all seems to be the same time!

I believe you have your facts mixed up, they don’t sell cans of beer with 1.7 oz. That sounds like a shot of liquor. Also, the gov’t is reviewing Canada’s recommendation of 2 cans per day, which sounds like a sensible amount to me. I mean it’s not like they are going to recommend 2 six packs.
