Most people think that beer is fattening and not healthy for you. Well the research shows that when you drink beer in moderation, it has healthy benefits for you. Beer is fat free, cholesterol free, and low in carbohydrates. Most 341-ml bottles of beer with 5 % alcohol have only 5 - 12 g of carbohydrates. There are between 95 – 150 calories in a 12 oz. beer depending on the type of beer. Depending whether it is a light beer or a darker beer and the amount of alcohol in it, determines the amount of carbohydrates and calories. In comparison 12 ounces of skim milk has about 125 and orange juice has about 150 calories. Now that doesn’t mean that you should drink beer instead of milk and orange juice, just drink it in moderation, as part of an otherwise healthy diet. Choose a beer over a soda, sugary juice, or cocktail.
