I have see some silly claims but beer markets holding themselves out as medical professionals but this image has to be the most obviously fibby. Apparently, sayeth the Daily Mail, a pint of 4% beer has lower calories than a 250 ml glass of wine. I am not sure what sort of beer or wine they are describing so I can't be sure that the 182 to 197 beer to wine ratio makes sense in all situations but I am pretty sure that a 250 ml serving of wine is a third of a bottle where as a normal serving is generally a fourth or fifth of a bottle. A quarter bottle serving of that wine carries 149 calories.
Now, this is a British info-fact-mercial image and, with respect, we have been advised recently of the nature of modern British drinking habits. Plus I read the ripping real-life Edwardian Tales of Stonch in which he ascends and descends a Welsh mountain* immediately after draining four pints of ale on one day while, seemingly just the day before, he drinks Thanet** dry. So I know there is something pretty crazy going on there. Maybe they are all dropping a bottle of wine for every trio of pours. Who knows?
But we do know that a 250 ml glass of 12.5% wine has about 50% more alcohol than a 4% pint of beer. So over the course of a night - or a year for that matter - the two measures are just not comparable. Why was that the chosen comparison? To rig the game, of course. You can't actually seek to just understand these things. You need to twist them if the beer messaging goal*** is to be achieved. Lesson: don't take health advice from beer trade associations or alky beer communicator interns. If someone needs to pretty it up like this, it's likely because it's a fib.
