Low Calorie Beer Comparison

If you’re looking for a tasty low calorie alternative to the beer you drink then look no further.

Keep in mind, however, that if you’re drinking to reach a buzz (or more) then it doesn’t really matter what type of beer you drink.  Lower calorie beers typically have a lower alcohol content, so you’ll most likely be drinking more of them to achieve the same effect, thus you’ll be consuming roughly the same amount of calories as if you were drinking a higher calorie, full flavored alternative.

But, if you’re just a social drinker who wants to enjoy a few beers without the added calories then a low calorie beer is perfect for you.  You can save 500 calories or more if you drink three lower calorie beers compared to higher calorie ones.

So, to help you choose a low calorie beer we’ve compiled a list of the 20 most popular beers under 100 calories on the market today. The trick is to find a low calorie beer that you enjoy, which means you may have to experiment with a few on the list to find one you like.  You might also want to check out these low calorie alcoholic drinks and cocktail recipes!

    I’ve tried MGD64 and like it, but my guy friends all hate it. I think part of the reason is that it’s not “macho” enough to drink a super light beer!

    Just did my own review on the top 5 low calorie lagers. It’d be awesome if you tried some of the beers you listed, and let us know how they are! Many low calorie beers tend to taste like water or pee.

      Hey Luke! Nice review on your blog! I have tried 10 of the 20 beers on this list. Some are definitely more watered down than others, but you’re going to have that with most low calorie beers. Like I suggested, it’s best to just try some on the list and see what you like best. Everybody has a different idea of what a good beer is. Personally, if I plan on drinking quite a few beers I drink MGD 64, otherwise when I drink just a beer or two I prefer a good ale – Spotted Cow is by far my favorite beer. Try it if you’re ever in the Wisconsin area. It wouldn’t be considered low cal but you’ve got a live every once in a while!

    Bud light has 110 calories per 12 oz serving so it doesn’t belong on this list. Mich Ultra is one of my favorite light beers. It tastes good and it doesn’t have a ton of calories. You can add a splash of fresh oj to give it more flavor.

      Good call Megan! I removed Bud light and replaced it with Becks light, which has 64 calories, and is actually quite good for how low in calories it is. Thanks for stopping by!
