Beer 101

The 4 Ingredients in Beer.

Almost all beer consists of 4 ingredients: Water, malted grains*, hops and yeast. These grains are the primary source of calories and carbs that you get from the beer. The calorie content of the beer depends mostly on the grains, not to forget the alcohol content which consists of 7 empty calories per gram!

*Malted grains are grains that are germinated and dried in order to activate enzymes that help break down the starch from the grains into simple sugars. The yeast will then digest these simple sugars even further to create alcohol. Other malted grains commonly used in brewing include wheat, rye and oats.
