10 of the world’s lowest calorie beers 2020

5. Dogfish Head Slighty Mighty IPA

ABV: 4%
Calories: 95 per 12oz
Style: IPA
Brand owner: Dogfish Head Brewery, Delaware

Dogfish Head’s Slighty Mighty IPA is the result of 12 months research and development, followed by “months of fine tuning” to create a beer that “has all the character of a world class IPA, but with only 95 calories”. The team used monk fruit in the beer’s production, a Chinese delicacy that is sweeter than sugar per ounce and boosts the body and complexity of the beer, but with no calories.

“Most light beers are watery and lack body, but with Slightly Mighty, the monk fruit essentially acts as the beer’s skeleton, on which mighty hop muscle and flavor can be built,” its makers say. “It allows us to reduce the malt bill and avoid any unnecessary unfermentable sugars, and consequently deliver a beer that is lower in calories and carbs, and perfectly balanced.”

The resulting beer is said to exude notes of pineapple, coconut, mango and citrus.
