If you’re a beer drinker, you may want to check out our Beer Calories for a Day article, as this article explains how much beer you need to consume to be a healthy, active adult.
The average adult drinks about 6.6 gallons of beer a day, and if you want to be healthy, that’s up from the 5.3 gallons that were reported by the National Institutes of Health last year.
However, that doesn’t take into account the alcohol in the beverage.
That’s where our calculator comes in.
For the sake of this calculator, let’s assume that the average adult consumes about 7.4 gallons of alcohol a day.
That equals a whopping 1.4 liters of alcohol per day, or about 8.5 bottles of beer.
That means that if you drink four or five beers a day you need an average of 8.6 bottles of alcohol to be fit to lead a healthy lifestyle.
According to the CDC, it takes an average adult about 10.5 days to consume the recommended daily allowance of about 4.3 ounces of alcohol.
That would mean that an average person would need to drink 1.9 bottles of wine, 1.8 beers, and 1.5 glasses of spirits per day to reach their recommended daily intake.
Beer Calories for A Day by age groupThe chart below shows the average amount of beer consumed per day by age groups for men, women, and children.
For men, this is about 1.1 gallons per day.
For women, this would be 1.3 or 1.7 gallons per week.
For children under six, this amount would be about 1 ounce per day or about one bottle per week (1.3 bottles a day).
For adults over age 60, this figure would be 3.6 or 3.8 ounces per day per week, or roughly a half gallon per day (1 gallon per week).
