A Comparison of Your Favorite Beers

It’s Oktoberfest time! And that means brats and beers, of all sizes and origins! But I know you’ve also been dieting all year long and want to watch your waistline (I’m in the same boat). If you’re interested in achieving that sweet, sweet balance of enjoying a mug (or two) of ale and keeping the beer belly miles away, then I’ve got just the thing for you. I’ve rounded up a list of the nutritional facts for the most popular kinds of beer, so you can make the best choices this Fall, and still enjoy an outing with your friends.

Take a look at the chart below – the numbers may surprise you. Keep in mind that even though there may be health benefits associated with drinking alcohol, they only come with drinking in moderation. For women, that means about one glass a day. As the Germans say – “Prost!”
