Calories, Carbs, and Alcohol Percentage in Popular Beers

beer nutrition facts

I’m pretty sure most people have one “go-to” beer they love, live by, and enjoy whenever it’s available. For me it’s Guinness….mmmmmm. I love Guinness because it’s got a really creamy, rich taste with hints of chocolate and coffee. It’s so freaking delicious!

To be honest though, I think what I love even more about Guinness is that it has more flavor than any regular beer I’ve ever tasted, yet it only has a few more calories than most light beers. 125 calories per bottle…that’s it. I’m glad to say I’ve found a healthier-ish beer that I really love.

Check out the list below for the calories, carbs, and alcohol percentage in your own personal favorite beer, as well as a few of my recommended “lean” beers. Oh….and remember this, one beer every once in a while can actually help lower your LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) and have a positive impact on your health, so enjoy. Keep it to two or fewer though–drinking three of more beers diminishes the cholesterol lowering effects and promotes obesity, diabetes, cancer, and of course body fat gain.
