Amstel Light Low Carb Beer
While wine is great for a low carb diet, beer is usually off limits because of its high carb counts. Amstel Light gives you a tasty alternative.
One of my favorite book characters, Spenser from the Spenser for Hire series, was drinking Amstel Lights back in the early 70s. Over the years it has been known as a diet beer, but for low carb enthusiasts, the selling point is the 5g carbs per bottle.
While this isn't a designer beer or rich, flavorful porter, it is a reasonably good beer for hanging out and having fun with friends. Remember that your alcohol tolerance drops when you're on a low carb diet, so drink lots of water while you have alcohol and space your drinks accordingly.
There are of course several other low carb beer options out there, many with carb counts of 2g or even lower. But we've found that as you go "down" from Amstel Light you lose a lot of flavor and get a more watery feeling. So for us, the best tradeoff is just one or two Amstel Lights and lots of great, low carb food to go with it!
