Acid-Alkaline Beer PRAL List

Before you use this PRAL Beer List, you must understand and agree to PRAL Food Lists Principles. In particular, remember that PRAL is an estimate of the acid load on your kidneys after digestion of food and drink. That estimate has been shown to be reliable in many scientific studies. But I am unaware of any studies that specifically looked at beer consumption related to the PRAL calculation. However, there are implications from other studies that alcohol has effects on acid load beyond the estimates based on the PRAL nutrients.

Those studies are beyond the scope of ALKAscore. But my recommendation is that you should not rely on PRAL tables if you consume excess amounts of alcohol. Because I do not have the qualifications to assess such effects. So if your alcohol consumption is of concern to you or people you know, you should consult a doctor now.

Otherwise, these tables should help estimate your PRAL alkalinity values if your beer consumption is moderate. In fact, beer is near the PRAL neutral value of zero. So if you are drinking enough to get a significant PRAL score from your beer intake, the PRAL method may not be accurate for you. But your doctor should be able to assess that properly.

Acid-Alkaline Beer List

I list beers with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the highest alkaline load. So the most alkalizing beverages show first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.

For the beer category, the average PRAL values are -0.26 per 100 grams and -0.47 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other alcoholic beverages in the Food Category List.

But alcohol-related PRAL should never be significant.

Your Alkaline Beer

Remember, factors such as growing conditions, variety, and preparation methods affect all food nutrients. USDA database values are an average of many samples. So your PRAL values for beer will vary from day to day. But they are always an estimate of actual acid load on your kidneys. Which I explain more in the notes about PRAL principles on the category list page.
