Calories in Alcohol

ShareThis

What’s the damage to your waistline from alcohol? It can be a guessing game.

Labels for most beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages aren’t required to list calories…or even ingredients. (You can thank the U.S. Treasury Department for that industry-friendly rule. We fought—and lost—that battle.)

A group of major beer companies recently announced plans to voluntarily list calories, carbs, fat, and protein—but not ingredients—on their product labels by the end of 2020. (They will disclose ingredients on a website or label, or via a QR code.) For now, we compiled these numbers from websites and some labels, and by contacting companies.

Just keep in mind that alcohol is responsible for 88,000 deaths in the United States each year. It’s a factor in about 60 percent of fatal burns, drownings, and homicides, 50 percent of severe trauma injuries and sexual assaults, and 40 percent of fatal motor vehicle crashes, suicides, and fatal falls.
