Here Are Our Favorite Low-Carb Beers

FINDING A LOW-CARB beer that doesn’t suck is basically mission impossible.

And with the popularity of low-carb diets like Keto, some people are seeking the best of low-carb options for everything.

But when it comes to beer, low in carb can tend to mean low in flavor. Light beers have a bad rap for being way too watery and having absolutely zero body, or fullness of flavor. With a million new and different craft options on the market right now, reaching for the ‘light’ pick can just feel wrong.

Classic beers can have anywhere from 12 to 25 grams of carbs. Pilsners, lagers, and ales are typically on the low end of that spectrum, while as heavier stouts and IPAs sit on the higher side. Low-carb light beers (think BudLight and Miller Lite) keep their carbs below 5 grams.

We sampled a ton of different options, all under 5 grams of carbs, to find the ones that don’t taste like watered-down grains. You’re welcome in advance.

Here are our top seven.
