Hops

Do Hops Add Calories to Beer? (Plus Why IPAs Have More Calories)

Hops add an insignificant number of calories to beer through the extraction of hop oils during the brewing process where they are boiled or steeped in the beer to add flavor and aroma to the finished beer. Hop-heavy beer styles such as IPAs typically include more calories because they often have higher alcohol content and unfermentable sugars.
