Top 10 healthy beers that won’t add those extra calories when boozing!
Beer is considered to be one of the major contributors of pot-belly in young adults and middle-aged men. An average bottle of beer can have 150-200 calories. This is almost equal to the calorie content of one cheeseburger. However, we end up gulping down more than five bottles when we are in the mood. The calories, in turn, help the growth of fat around your body if you don’t work out. It’s better to cut down the calories but men seldom quit beer! To help them, here is a list of the top 10 healthy beers that won’t make one fat.
Beck’s Premier Light
It’s a beer that boasts very low calories. If you’re going to the gym but still want to crack open a cold one with the boys, Beck’s premier light is what you should drink. The alcohol content is 3.8%, a little lighter than usual.
If you want a beer very light on the alcohol content, go for MGD 64. It has the same number of calories as Beck’s Premier Light, which is 64 (hence the 64 in the name). The alcohol content is 2.8%. You’ll need lots of pints if you want to get drunk on this one.
Yuengling Light Lager
With a few extra calories (99 calories), Yuengling Light Lager offers an edge with its unique taste. With 9 grams of carbs, it swanks a low carb count too.
Michelob Ultra is the fore-runner of low-carb and low-calorie beers. The taste of this beer has been compared by many as liquefied love. It bundles up more flavors for your palate than other beers.
Abita Purple Haze
Purple Haze? Sounds like the name of an exotic dancer. The taste of this beer is no different. The beer is infused with raspberries to give it a fruity edge. The aroma of this beer is luscious and the taste is sweet. The added berries also introduce antioxidants to the beer.
Amstel Light has been labeled as the official ‘Beer of the Burger’. This beer accentuates the taste of your burger with its whole-grain taste. The alcohol content is 3.5% and it has 100 calories. The origin of this beer starts with the Dutch, who founded Amstel Brewery in 1872.
Coming from the land of shamrocks and leprechauns, the Guinness Draught has made an everlasting impact on the world. It’s a stout with 4% alcohol content and a creamy, dense flavor. Avoid this beer if you want a heavy stout.
Europe’s favorite beer also comes in a light-calorie derivative. This beer takes barely a month to develop its lager zest. Heineken Light is 100% malted and it possesses 99 calories and 7 grams of crabs.
Sam Adams Light Lager
Sam Adams Light Lager is a bit heavy but still low on the calories. The taste isn’t that fancy but it has hints of caramel, faint grain and a little bit of hops. If you love watery beers, you’ll like this one.
Porterhouse Oyster Stout
Steer clear vegans and vegetarians, the stout gets its name from the ingredients it uses. Porterhouse Oyster Stout uses oysters. The beer might have a few extra calories (156 calories in total) but Vitamin B12, zinc and iron make up for it.
