Enjoy the beer that you deserve.
Calories are a measure of energy obtained from food. They are defined as the amount of energy required to raise one kilogram of water 1 degree Celsius.
For those brewing and enjoying beer, know that the beer’s caloric content is a direct function of the final gravity and alcoholic strength of the beer. In fact, alcohol generates calories at a 7/4 ratio more than carbohydrates or protein.
When labeling food and beverages, the term calorie and kilocalorie are used almost interchangeably. The metric units for this parameter are kilojoules.
