I’m comparing wheat beers, as they still taste of something.
And they have calories from protein and carbohydrates.
The new, modern AFBs from BrewDog, et al. are much lower in calories (but I’ve not tried these, hence I did not know!)
There are 56 calories per unit of alcohol:
- Protein – 4 calories per gram
- Carbohydrates (including sugar) – 4 calories per gram
- Fat – 9 calories per gram
- Alcohol – 7 calories per gram (or 56 per unit)
Beer is fat free (YAY!)
Some of the DIPA/TIPA that I drink are close to 300 calories per 440ml
