This makes me think of what Julia Child said in her first book. She'd heard a lot about how you shouldn't cook vegetables too much or you'd destroy all the vitamins. Her response was that if you are worried about that you should simply eat more of the vegetables you prepare. Veg are low in calories (relatively speaking) so if you feel you're losing 25% of the vitamins, go ahead and eat 25% more. It won't hurt you, and might leave less room for dessert or other high-calorie foods in the bargain.
In this case, we're talking about BEER. If you're drinking beer, you probably shouldn't be sweating the calories, and if you are, just drink less of it.
