Q: Do beer and wine have about the same amount of calories?

Tonya says...
Beer has about 204 calories in a pint (454 mL). A light beer has about 137 calories a pint. A glass of dry wine (142 mL), on the other hand, has about 128 calories. And a glass of sweet dessert wine, like icewine, has 236 calories. If you drink a glass of wine before and during dinner, and a sweet wine for dessert, you’re looking at almost 500 calories—and that’s in addition to your meal!
