Top 10 most fattening beers6th November, 2013 by Andy Young
As brewers around the world push the beer boundaries more extreme and stronger beers are being brewed and the calorie count has gone up as well.
While techniques and styles can make stronger beers taste better than ever, there is no hiding from the calories some of these cracking beers contain.
Some of the UK’s favourite beers don’t stack up too badly against some of the ones in this list. A pint of Carling, Britain’s most popular lager, has 138 calories, Doom Bar, the UK’s most popular cask-conditioned ale has 203 calories per pint and Guinness Draught carries around 125 calories.
Many of the beers listed have many more calories, which have come as craft beer and brewing has boomed. Many brewers have a range of high-strength, and subsequently high-calorie ales, but this list just contains only one beer from any brewer.
