Good Beers by Category that will not break your Diet

Published Thursday, March 18, 2010 2:12 PM


I am a huge fan of beer and that being the case I drink way too much of it. The problem is I like drinking expensive beer from micro brewers that are better than the average beer. If you are on a diet or just trying to cut down on calories drinking the right good beers will help you avoid the good beers that will ruin your diet. If you pick the right good beer you can drink two for the price of one heavy beer. I submit this list for your consideration.   

Guinness –  120 Calories – 2 Weight Watchers Points!

Ales

Newcastle Brown Ale – 140 Calories – 3 Weight Watchers Points
Bass Ale – 140 Calories – 3 Weight Watchers Points
Oberon Ale – 170 Calories – 3 Weight Watchers Points
Fat Tire Amber Ale – 159 Calories – 3 Weight Watchers Points

    IPA

        Harpoon IPA 170 Calories - 3 Food Points
    Porters
        Kallisti Pottsville Porter – 165 Calories - 3 Food Points
        Redhook Blackhook Porter –  163 Calories - 3 Weight Watchers Points
        Flying Dog – Road Dog Scottish Porter – 165 Calories – 3 Weight Watchers Points
    
Lagers

Dunfel
        Warsteiner – Premium Dunfel – 150 Calories – 3 Food Points.

These are all much better than your cheap beer you buy in bulk and will also keep the calories down. Keep in mind if you think drinking miller lite is better for you think again. Miller lite and most other lite beer is still like 96 calories which is 2 Weight Watcher points. I much rather drink good beer that is has a few more calories and only one more food point than cheap watered down beer like Miller lite.
