Ask Real Beer

May 2000

I was wondering, does beer have more calories than hard liquor or wine? Are you more liable to gain weight quicker by drinking beer than hard liquor and wine?

The obvious answer is it depends on how much you drink. While beer has few calories per ounce, you probably drink more in a sitting. Michael Jackson's article "Why beer is best" offers more insights on this subject.
