Drinking Your Calories

How many calories are in your favorite beer?

Drinking Your Calories

How many calories in that mug of beer, glass of wine, or shot glass? It can be a guessing game.

Labels for most beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages aren’t required to list calories…or even ingredients. You can thank the U.S. Treasury Department for that industry-friendly, consumer-hostile rule. The Center for Science in the Public Interest fought—and lost—that battle.

A group of major beer companies have announced plans to voluntarily list calories, carbs, fat, and protein—but not ingredients—on their product labels by the end of 2020. (They’ll disclose ingredients on a website, the label, or via a QR code on your smartphone.)

For now, we compiled these numbers from websites and some labels, and by contacting companies.

See the list on Nutrition Action for more details.
