Calories in Beer: San Miguel versus Skinny Lager

The story begins with a group of Spaniards in 1890 sailing to Manila in the Philippines on a quest to establish the first brewery in South East Asia. With the brewery being located in the St Miguel district of Manila, San Miguel became the most fitting name to bestow on the new beer. Interesting little story.

With that aside, how many calories and carbohydrates can be found in a standard 330ml bottle of San Miguel?

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 San Miguel.

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

Calories San Miguel

The numbers don’t lie. With 89 calories per bottle, Skinny Lager has 35% fewer calories than San Miguel, which has 137 calories per bottle. Not only this, it also has 75% fewer carbs.

Therefore, if your go-to bottle of beer has typically been San Miguel, 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.
