Does Beer Have More Calories than Red Wine or a Doughnut?

RealClear Contributor


Countries around the world, including the United States and the United Kingdom do not show the caloric content of alcoholic beverages.

Most health experts say alcohol should be labeled to show its calorie content, to better inform consumers of what they are ingesting each time they imbibe.

Which has the most calories between a pint of lager, a pint of stout, a jelly doughnut, or a large glass of red wine? The results might surprise you!

-Pint of pale lager = 180 calories

-Pint of dark stout = 198 calories

-Large glass of red wine = 228 calories

-Regular jelly doughnut = 225 calories

Bottom line - Beer may have more calories than most realizes, but it's a decent replacement for that doughnut! Right?
