Calories in Beer: Heineken versus Skinny Lager

Known for its signature green bottle and red star, Heineken’s origins are dated back to a young Dutch entrepreneur who in 1894 acquired money from his wealthy mother in order to purchase and renovate an old brewery in the centre of Amsterdam.

Putting its history to one side, how does Heineken compare in terms of the number of calories and carbohydrates it contains in a single 330ml bottle?

To help towards finding this out, Skinny Brands recently released statistics on the number of calories in popular brands of beer versus their flagship product, Skinny Lager - the aim being to raise awareness on the number of calories in beer. One of the bottles used for comparison was Heineken.

Below we take a look at how the numbers compare between a bottle of Heineken and a bottle of Skinny Lager.

Heineken Calories

The numbers don’t lie. With 89 calories per bottle, Skinny Lager has 35% fewer calories than Heineken, which has 137 calories per bottle. Not only this, it also has 71% fewer carbs.

Therefore, if your go-to bottle of beer has typically been Heineken, then you certainly need to sample the crisp, clean taste of the world’s first ‘skinny’ lager.

Brewed in the UK, Skinny Lager is also vegan-friendly and gluten-free.
