looking for lower calorie beers with higher abv

jessicheese | Oct 17, 2011 11:17 AM

I have been trying to watch my calories, which resulted in a great sadness when I discovered how many calories lurked in each bottle of my favorite craft beers. As a piggyback to another post about great tasting but low calorie beers, I found myself asking another question:

Which beers taste great and have the same affects, but aren't as heavy on calories?

One of our go-to beers is Yuengling Lager. I briefly drank Yuengling Light, feeling like I was saving calories, until I compared the bottles. YL has exactly half the alcohol content as regular Yuengling, meaning that I'd have to drink twice as much to get the same affects. I've decided its not worth the Light part and gone back to plain Yuengling.

I'd love to get some ideas and suggestions of beers that are great tasting, have a decent alcohol content, and are under 150 calories per bottle. Thoughts?
