the most satisfying beers for under 140 calories

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. If I'm going to be bad, I'm going to be bad, and not care about calories. Drinking once a month ain't going to kill you. It's just when you start doint it every weekend, or worse still, every day, that's going to get you.

    Alcohol is bad, but then again, so is cheesecake.

    Anyhow, here are some of my favorite brews:

    Ayinger:
    Altbairisch Dunkel
    Celebrator Dopple Bock
    Ur Weizen
    and if you can ever find it.... Weizenbock.

    Spaten:
    Oktoberfest
    Export Dunkel

    Samuel Adams:
    Black Lager

    Wanna drink some maple syrup that will knock you on your're tail...
    EKU28. 14% alcohol. Not so tasty, but drink two or three bottles, and you'll know it.

    Chimey:
    Blue bottle. Maybe 9% alcohol, and tastes great. I buy it in the big bottle.

    That is exactly why Guinness is a good choice for BBers who are going to drink. It is packed with nutrients, only has 125 cals, and you get too full to drink a dozen.

I love that ****. That's my boozin' it up beer. My of choice is definitely Guinness and just about any oatmeal stout. It says oat in it...that means it's good for you, right?
    I forgot to mention that $6 12-pack of Natty Light is only 95 calories per 12oz can/bottle--do others places have NattyLight in bottles or is just FL?

    Other great beers are any of the Sam Adams Seasonal Brews.

  4. By the way,

    My friend brought me back some Guiness from Ireland, and the stuff tastes like heaven. The stuff you get here in the states, reminds me of road tar. I'm not sure what the difference is, but the stuff you get in Ireland is not the stuff you get here in the states.

  5. oh yeah i like this beer called hoegarden (sp)? And i also enjoy mgd when i want to drink a more mainstream beer like say in a pub or bar that doesnt have guiness. Beowulf Ive never been able to find exactly what nutrients are in guiness but it feels like pure energy in my body when i drink it i feel strong, explosive, and muscle bellies are full, and this is not the beer goggles i mean after 1 or 2. Im not talking about drunken courage but i honestly feel physically good on one or two guinesses, of which i do not experience with other beers.

    It must be naturally occurring IGF :bb2:

    I'm not sure why red wine vasodilates, but maybe Guinness does the same thing. Murphy's actually tastes better than Guinness, at least in the U.S.

    I'm not sure what the difference is, but the stuff you get in Ireland is not the stuff you get here in the states.
    I wonder if it is brewed in the U.S. I know that when I was in Spain, the Guinness was brewed at the Cruzcampo brewery. Cruzcampo, the Spanish have blessed us with much; Cruzcampo is not among these gifts

    Another possible explanation could be a need for preservatives, or maybe degradation from the trip across the Atlantic. In Ireland, they claim the Guinness tastes better the closer you get to Dublin (the brewery). Of course, the Irish are notorious BullPoopers. I've never noticed a difference. Nonetheless, freshness could be a factor.

  8. I used to not be able to drink a lot of Guinness. Then I bounced in an Irish bar (a real Irish bar - the owner and half the staff were right off the boat). Now, I can drink just as much of it as I can any other beer.

  9. I tried the Beck's Light, and it is pretty good. It is very watery, but doesn't taste bad. Warning: you will probably put down 3 before you realize it. I chug water all day, so when I pick up a watery beer it is easy to do the same.

    For anyone who uses Fitday, you can plug it right in by following this link
    http://www.dietfacts.com/html/items/36047.htm

    It doesn't include grams of alcohol so you have to add 6g alcohol in the nutritional profile in fitday.

    I hear ya, thats why I stick to stouts and porters

  11. I like stouts and porters, but I drink lighter beers sometimes, depending on the circumstances and what I am eating at the time.

  12. How could you guys forget Bud Light? 4.2% alcohol, 110 calories, 6.6 grams of carbs.

    Not to mention it tastes so good once it hits the lips.

    That's where we disagree


  14. Bud Light is ok, but when I drink p1sswater, it's usually Coors Light.

    Or whatever is on special. Last night at happy hour it was $5 pitchers of Miller Light.

  15. Lol... Natty Light here. You can get a pounder (16oz) here for $1.00 any night of the week.

    Guiness-1# satisfaction in a glass!

    When I'm cutting calories I drink 1 glass less(ultimate light beer experience)

    When I am posturing at a NYC hotspot I drink Heineken, the shear cost of $6-8 is enough to keep the quantities down to a minimum!
