Brandy, beer and wine are all different types of alcohol that come in a variety of different flavors and styles, brewed and distilled by an immensely diverse collection of companies; however, generally, each type contains a similar amount of calories.


An 86 proof brandy, 43 percent alcohol by volume, contains 70 calories per 1-oz. serving. None of these calories are from fat, and a serving contains 0.1 g of sugar.


Though there are many varieties of wines with varying calorie counts, in general, one glass of red wine, or about 5 oz., contains 127 calories and 5.5 g of carbohydrates; the same serving of white wine has about 114 calories and 4 g of carbs.


Beer, like wine, comes in many different makes and flavors, but generally speaking an average 5 percent alcohol beer contains about 102 calories and 8.5 g of carbohydrates.
