Top 10 most fattening beers

6th 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.

man-belly-fat-and-beerWhile 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.

    You are not telling the truth but then why would you. Sure the tobacco industry still try to tell us that smoking cigarettes doesn’t cause lung cancer. Guinness’s own figures tell us that a pint of their stout contains 198 calories. Not the 125 that you are wrongly suggesting.

    Barry Delaney: Presumably there has never been a man on the moon, either? Given that the whole point of this slideshow is to show how fattening drinks are, have you considered that maybe the Guinness figure is merely misprint?

  4. Steve Chapman says:

    The calorie discrepancy on the Guinness is simple. The description was referring to a 330 ml bottle, not the pint (roughly 500 ml) serving.
