It’s Superbowl Sunday! Sip smart with our Cocktail Calorie Guide!

Snacking is as big of an addition to Superbowl Sunday as catching the commercials, and no matter what your plans are for the big game, you’ve probably got a medley of munchies to enjoy during the football festivities. We all know that nothing goes as well with a big pile of nachos and hot wings like a couple of ice cold beers, but your game day drinks can add hundreds of calories to an already fattening feast. And while it’s perfectly okay to relax on your diet a little bit this evening, there are some simple swaps you can make to lighten the calorie load a little and still enjoy yourself. The following guide to cocktail calories will help you navigate the beer aisle and make the best choices so you can have fun this Superbowl Sunday without feeling too much guilt come Monday.

*The numbers listed on this chart are an estimate and are subject to change based on changes in the brewers’ recipes. Calories and carbs are based on 12 oz. servings.

Your favorite brew not on the list? Calculate the calories with this simple formula:

There are two reasons for beer’s caloric content: alcohol and carbohydrates. There are 7 calories per gram of alcohol, so the higher the alcohol volume, the more calories in the beer. An easy way to estimate how many calories are in your favorite beer is to multiply the ABV by 2.5 to get an estimate of calories per ounce. Multiply that number by the number of ounces and you have an estimate of how many calories are in each can or bottle of your favorite brew.

Now, lets get ready for some football!!
