Beers to swell by

Aggregator moment again ...

The online magazine The Daily Beast reaches out via email to Beer-Stained Letter with a link to their post on "The 50 Most Fattening Beers."

Here's what they say are the tops for straining the belt and some others that are a little friendlier (the list doesn't mine the craft vein all that much, but The Beast does say they pulled from the big domestics; and alas, their yardstick was most calories and carbs for least amount of alcohol content).

Top Worst:

  • Boulevard Brewing's Unfiltered Wheat Beer (155 calories, 35 carbs and 4.4% alcohol)
  • Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss (207 calories, 28 carbs, 4.8% alcohol)
  • Grolsch Blonde Lager (120 calories, 15.8 carbs, 2.8% alcohol)
Least Worst:
  • Schaefer (142 calories, 12 carbs, 4.6% alcohol)
  • Guinness (125 calories, 10 carbs, 4% alcohol)
  • Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale (180 calories, 14.7 carbs, 5.8% alcohol)
Make what you want of it. But if you're seriously looking at calories and beer, take a glance over at Peter Kennedy's Simply Beer.

Beer is my favorite drink. I can drink it anytime.
