Default Low calorie beer

Is there an easy way to lower the calorie in a beer? I have been playing around with my software and I really have not found a way to really lower it.

Yeah drink Miller Lite. Sorry EAC response. But seri, smaller beers with low finishing gravitys. For example Guinness a dry stout, less sugars remaining in the beer fewer calories.

Less Malt = Less Sugars = Less Calories

Home brew is not realy a low calorie option unless you are going for a BMC lite clone.

No real help to offer I'm afraid.

Just drink less and exercise more. No magic available

A beer in one hand, a bottle of water on the other... then again it's more fun with a beer in each hand...

If you are brewing all grain, you can do lower temperature mashes and get a more fermentable wort. Stay away from specialty grains (like crystal and cara-pils) that have levels of unfermentables. And, as mentioned, brew smaller beers. Every percent ABV is another 30 Calories per pint.
