Celebrate With a Cold One! Calories in Your Summertime Beer

Jun 24 2014 - 10:38am

Warmer weather is synonymous with barbecues, which means hamburgers, potato salad, and, of course, beer. Unfortunately, sipping a bottle is like "liquid bread" because of all the carbs, so it's good to know that not all beers are created equally, especially when it comes to calories.

If you're watching your waistline and enjoying an ice-cold brew, then you'll probably want to see how beers compare. The numbers may surprise you. Here's the nutritional info for one glass, can, or bottle of beer (about 12 ounces). Keep in mind that even though there may be health benefits associated with drinking alcohol [1], they only come with drinking in moderation. For women, that means one drink a day.
