    Answer 1/11

    A beer’s label must list calories only if it claims to be a “lite” beer.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (formerly the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) regulates the labeling of alcoholic beverages, not the FDA, and that agency does not require statements of caloric content unless the beverage is “labeled with caloric representation (such as ‘Light’ or ‘Lite’),” according to the Malt Beverage Labeling Regulations. Statements of alcohol content are also optional, unless required by state law.

    Question 2/11

    All “lite” beers contain fewer than 100 calories.

    Answer 2/11

    All “lite” beers contain fewer than 100 calories.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    An average 12-ounce “lite” beer has 100 to 130 calories, while a typical 12-ounce regular beer has 150 to 200 calories. The difference between a “lite” beer and a regular beer could be as few as 20 calories or as many as 100.

    Question 3/11

    Beer is fat-free.

  • slide image
    Answer 3/11

    Beer is fat-free.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Beer, like wine, is fat-free, and it contains some helpful nutrients in small amounts, including protein, potassium, folate, vitamin B12, and selenium. However, beer is one of the top five sources of calories among American adults and a poor source of nutrients, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

    Answer 4/11

    Drinking two regular beers would account for about the same number of calories as eating which of the following?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Drinking two regular beers would account for 300 to 400 calories, roughly the same amount as in a typical fast-food double hamburger, a typical fast-food roast beef sandwich, or two slices of cheese pizza.

    Question 5/11

    Beers with higher alcohol content usually have about the same number of calories as those with lower alcohol content.

  • slide image
    Answer 5/11

    Beers with higher alcohol content usually have about the same number of calories as those with lower alcohol content.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Alcohol contains about 7 calories per gram, so more alcohol means more calories. Alcohol has almost as many calories as fat (9 calories per gram) and almost double the caloric content of carbohydrates or protein (about 4 calories per gram). The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend reducing alcohol consumption if you’re trying to reduce your calorie intake.

    Question 6/11

    Light-colored beers always have fewer calories than dark beers.

  • slide image
    Answer 6/11

    Light-colored beers always have fewer calories than dark beers.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    The number of calories in a beer is based primarily on alcohol content, not on the color or texture of the beer. The color of the beer is determined by the color of the malt (barley processed for brewing).

    Question 7/11

    The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend a limit of how many alcoholic drinks per day for men?

  • slide image
    Answer 7/11

    The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend a limit of how many alcoholic drinks per day for men?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    The Dietary Guidelines recommend that if alcohol is drunk, it should be no more than two alcoholic drinks per day for men. One drink is the equivalent of a 12-ounce beer (regular or “lite”), a 5-ounce glass of wine, or a drink containing 1.5 ounces of 80 proof spirits or liqueurs.

    Answer 8/11

    The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend a limit of how many alcoholic drinks per day for women?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    The Dietary Guidelines recommend that if alcohol is drunk, it should be no more than one alcoholic drink per day for women. That could mean one 12-ounce beer (regular or “lite”), one 5-ounce glass of wine, or one drink containing 1.5 ounces of spirits or liqueurs.

    Question 9/11

    Which of the following has the most calories per serving?

  • slide image
    Answer 9/11

    Which of the following has the most calories per serving?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Per serving, beer has more calories than 80 proof liquor (about 100 calories) or wine (about 120 calories). Keep in mind that if you add juice or cola to the liquor, the number of calories could exceed the number in a regular beer (150 to 200).

    Question 10/11

    Men who don’t drink beer can still develop a “beer belly.”

  • slide image
    Answer 10/11

    Men who don’t drink beer can still develop a “beer belly.”

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    A “beer belly” comes from excess calories, not necessarily from beer. Too many calories of any kind can lead to a beer belly. However, beer’s extra calories certainly can contribute to an increased waistline, particularly because it is easy to ramp up calories from beer or other alcoholic drinks and the foods you like to eat while drinking.
