This Connecticut beer’s existence is a minor miracle.

  • It is really tough to lose weight when you are a craft beer fan. Some craft beer brewers make light beers like Sam Adams and Wachusett in my area.

    I lost 30 pounds in 2013-2014 but I walked 2-4 miles per day and still would have a full-bodied beer. If I had gone the light beer route I would have lost the weight more quickly I expect.

  • I love beer but as I get older my stomach got a little puggy, not too bad by any means but it’s just age.. I have been going more towards light beer. It sucks, but I rather have some kind of beer then no kind of beer, savy?

  • I was a BUDWEISER “HEAVY” guy for many many many years. I switched to Miller Lite a little over a month ago and I have lost 6 pounds. Hopefully over more time I shed more weight. I shall let you know!

  • I ride/workout everyday and consider beer a reward. I’ll avoid excess especially when I don’t exercise. I typically enjoy a nice saison after those hot humid rides. Anything light and local is thumbs up for me. I can’t get into the BMC stuff. Like you said it’s beer flavored water. Cheers

  • Sad to say i gained quite the Stomach over the years so I just started losing weight as of March 2019. Id like to get to 170s again, thats when I was satisfied with my weight. As far as Ale choices, I mostly Drink what I want, then eat less if I need to. That said depends on the day as I have a physical Job. Im also in a life situation right now where I need to save as much as I can. My choice Ales right now are Yuengling Ale, Newcastle, and Guinness Extra Stout. All are under 200 calories. Tanqueray Gin is also very good. Its hard for me to Choose domestics over my cherised ale, not drinking or drinking less is eaiser for me. That said my weight loss is crucial to me so whatever I need to do. I cant wait to get to my goal weight and get a 400+ calorie allowance back.

  • one year I lost 60 lbs, in 3.5 months….eating only chili for lunch, and about 8 Miller Lites a night….I was also working 13 hour days……Extreme, but Effective! =P

  • OMG, finally the month is over! Can’t wait to see if it was all worth the grief it caused you! And see if I win my bet that you didn’t lose more than 2 pounds. 😉

  • Im more interested in low carb options that taste great…. hoping there is more to come. im not into the vodka based seltzer waters…not my thing.

  • Just bought my first 12 pack and really liked this beer. It works as a low carb beer. I was pleasantly surprised that it actually tasted like a craft beer. I was drinking Cornona premium which is OK but this tastes so much better. It doesn’t taste as watery and light as the other low carb beers I have had, but it is!

  • That was informative….but gotta say I prefer comparison videos.
    Hey, have you guys compared brands of eggnog yet? I ALMOST bought some today but thought I’d better wait for your recommendation first.

  • I know you’ve done a couple episodes on Henry Weinhard’s Private Reserve, but I don’t know if you “like it,” like it. I like it quite a bit. Henry’s and Guinness are my go-to macros when I’m out of home brew. Guinness has only 125 calories, and Henry’s has 150. Kind of surprising. Those extra 25-50 calories are worth it, in my opinion.

  • Lost 15 pounds and in terms of beer I just avoided stouts and tracked my calories. If I wanted a beer I’d go for a Archers Mango Wheat (135 calories).

  • I didnt think you were making videos still. How much beer were you drinking when you were overweight. Not saying you are were overweight.

  • I read lots of great opinions on the net about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can assist you lost a ton of weight. Has anybody tried this popular lose weight methods?

  • Been on Keto Diet and man o man was craving a beer, ive had Corona Premier which is ok but tried Saint Archer loved the taste way better and kept the carbs down..Great Review!!

  • If you don’t want to sacrifice flavor at *all*, Red Stripe lager at 139 calories is a pick. Guinness at 125 even better if you like stouts.

  • I find that craft beer fans WILL drink American Lager beer. It has its place in the beer world but it may not be their first choice. If I’m losing weight, I may just go with Miller Lite just because Beast Light just doesn’t have the flavor I’m looking for. But again, beer taste is so objective that they may drink a high ABV stout and then crank off 10 reps at 225lbs.

  • Filming along with narration is REALLY good, along with an acute review, makes for a great video. Was curious about Flyjack, never heard of Wowza, but glad to hear they both have flavor still. Thanks Jon =]

  • Hi James, first I want to say that I really enjoyed the Better Beer Authority videos. I stumbled upon them recently, and really thought they represented the best of craft beer. Tasty but not snobby. Must be the rust belt mentality. Hopefully you can do some more in the future.

    Congrats on losing the weight. That’s some discipline. What about Guinness beer? It’s only 125 calories per bottle with some nice flavor?

  • Good review, I love craft beers but I have no problem with light beer. I have not had Milwaukee’s best light in a long time, I’ll have to grab some soon.

  • I’m currently on a weight loss journey and love craft beer. I run 4 miles a day to help with my calorie intake vs out and limit drinking my craft beers on my cheat day which is Saturday.

  • Love the thought of these techniques being applied to the bigger beers to lower the cals. its quite an issue being able to drink several of these 300 cal beers during a night out; without feeling as guilty as if you at that amount of calories in food! (1.5 beers = 1 big mac!). That said, it depends on how they are lowering the cals, it may not be economic for brewery’s to do this at the higher end:(

    Loving the content Jon and only 2 sleeps away until your shackles are cast aside 😉

  • Anyone tried the Fenoboci Diet Plan? I have heard several great things about it and my work buddy lost a ton of weight with Fenoboci Diet Plan (do a search on google).

  • You poor man, the depths you have sunk to. Not too long now, to celebrate the end of march break out some unicorns from the fridge 😉

  • This was such a great video!!! Glad you were able to stay motivated and had the self discipline to make it through that. Then on top of that having to find 100 cal or less. Much praise to you on sticking with it all the way!!!!!

  • I think miller lite changed their recipe en the last 12 months. I could be wrong but the may have removed the HFCS and replaced it with something else. I find myself bloated after drinking Miller light.
    I m gonna try the other beers you recommended in this video.

  • I have lost significant weight twice in my life. The first was intentional as I was on a ‘bulking’ weight lifting program and wanted to loose the extra fat I had gained. I used myfitnesspal (both for gain and loss) and had great success. I never really had any go to weight loss beers, but (like you) I was very conscious of leaving enough cals for my end of the day beer. I am now currently on my second significant weight loss of my life, albeit unintended. When my first kid came along there was a lot less time for all of my exercise hobbies (weight lifting, running, mtb, 14er bagging) so I made the very conscious decision that when I did have time to ‘work out’ I would only do what I enjoyed most, which happens to be cardio. I now eat very healthy food (whole foods mostly), but I drink what ever I want; 1-2 craft beers/day during the week and 2-3 craft beers/day on weekends. If I have an especially epic ride or run I will treat myself with ice cream or some other junk. Btw, are you on strava?

  • Guinness is 125 calories in a 12 oz pour. Speaking of pour, poor Gyrus was freaking out the whole video. Great video! Thanks for making me thirsty.

  • I use an app called lose it! to track my calories, they have almost every craft beer you can find in there and I’ve lost about 75lbs in a year without needing to adjust my beer intake very much. I try to get at least 1/3 calories from protein, 1/3 fat, and 1/3 carbs… I find it hard to over drink in that ratio

  • I lost about 10-12 pounds, and got my triglycerides back in check. That was my main goal, not really losing weight. I didn’t change my beer drinking habits, but I did stop eating fried food (especially french fries), cut down my food portions, and started eating more healthy choices. I also started running a bit. Beer drinking in my life isn’t going to change any time soon for me (despite what my doctor tells me)!

  • I don’t know if I missed it or you don’t have the beers listed somewhere. Would you be able to post a list of the beers you tried for these 30 days? Thank so much!

  • My girlfriend told me, that everytime I goto the fridge for a can of beer (330ml), I should do 10 pushups at least, 10 push ups is nothing for a man like me, so id I drink beer only, and do my push up like that for like 10 days(I heart that if you drink beer only not eating the record is lasting 33 days or survivie), so can I lose weight really fast by doing what I do?

  • Have you considered home brewing? Recipe apps like BrewTarget will estimate the caloric value of your brew. Thus, allowing you to customize the ingredients in a recipe to hit a target calorie count.

  • That was amazing! And a very good experiment with excellent results. My question is could someone remove a meal a day and still have their good heavy beers? And maybe save some sanity, that was an depressing waste of alcohol at the end lol and good stuff too. Well done Jon 😉

  • I could literally feel the animosity towards Jeff & co. wafting from my screen…

    Great video series and congrats on successfully making it through to the end!!

  • My favorite beer for when I need to watch calories is Guinness. 125 calories puts it nearly in the “light beer” category, but it still tastes damn good.

  • I’ll give Milwauikee’s Best Light a try. I tried the Miller 64 and agree tastes more like mineral water. Not a beer connoisseur, but it’s nice to have once in a while.

  • Damn, at first I was afraid that your kidneys were shutting down from not having had a reel beer in over 3 weeks, but I guess it’s just your camera issues, this video is like a compilation of the evolution of video quality from the last 12 years on Youtube XD
