What are the pros and cons of drinking beer?

Background and context

As beer is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages worldwide, many doctors and health-conscious people ask about its possible benefits and drawbacks. Should we drink beer? Is it good for our health? (Does it contain useful minerals/vitamins? Is it good after physical activity? Does it contribute to putting up weight? ...)
