Summer and July Fourth calls for a refreshing ice-cold beer in hand. But with a single brew containing 153 calories on average, it’d be frighteningly easy to blow your daily caloric intake. Clocking in at less than 70 calories, these beers can help you enjoy without developing the dreaded beer gut. However, a word of caution: A lot of these beers have low alcohol content, so it may take multiple drinks (and thus more calories) to get you that buzz.

Budweiser Select 55
55 calories
Budweiser’s “ultra-low-calorie, low-carb beer” contains the fewest calories of all the beers on this list. The golden lager is made with caramel malts and contains 1.9 grams carbs and 0.5 grams protein in each 12-ounce glass bottle.

Beck’s Premier Light
64 calories
A 12-ounce bottle of Beck’s Premier Light contains 64 calories and 4 carbohydrates. At 3.8 percent alcohol by volume, it has one of the highest alcohol contents on this list.

Miller 64
64 calories
Previously called MGD64, this rebranded ultra-light beer by Miller contains 64 calories and 2.4 grams of carbohydrates in a 12-ounce bottle. Miller also offers a 64-calorie lemon-flavored beer, MGD 64 Lemonade.

Molson Canadian 67
67 calories
This blend of malted barley, wheat, and hops clocks in at 67 calories—less than half the amount in a normal 153-calorie Molson Canadian. If that sounds a bit too weak for you, try the 82-calorie Molson Light instead.
