How Many Calories in a Pint of Madri?

How Many Calories in a Pint of Madri?

Madri is a premium lager born in Toledo, in the fiery heartlands of Spain. First brewed in 2011, Madri combines clean, rich malt tones with a surprisingly crisp and bitter finish. This lager has become prominent over the past 5 years, reportedly holding the most sales for any new alcoholic beverage released in its first year across the UK. 

Madri certainly sprung out of almost nowhere, becoming one of the UK’s most popular lagers in such a short space of time. However, regular drinkers might not be aware that this new industry staple contains more calories than other premium lagers such as our own Skinny Lager. 

So, just how many calories are in a pint of Madri? 

According to third-party lab testing lab research, Madri contains 127 calories per 330ml bottle. This number rises when you order a pint of Madri, which contains 219 calories per serving. 

Madri also contains 9.2g of carbs per 330ml bottle or 15.8g per pint. 

Whilst the amount of calories and carbs present in a pint or bottle of Madri is actually less than the averages we recently reported in our article ‘How Many Calories Are In A Pint Of Lager?’, the amounts of each are still much higher than our own premium lager Skinny Lager. 

Let’s investigate how Madri stacks up against Skinny Lager in Gluten content, Vegan-Society Certification, Kosher status and other important nutritional metrics. 

So, How Many Calories Are in a Pint of Madri? 

There are 205 calories in a pint of Madri Excepcional, according to third-party independent lab research. This is slightly less than the average of all of the lagers that we have looked into previously. However, 219 Kcal is 10.95% of the recommended daily calorie intake for women and 8.8% of the daily calorie intake for men. This means that more than a few pints of Madri can really start to add unnecessary calories to your diet. 

How Many Calories Are in a Bottle of Madri?

There are 127 Kcals in a 330ml of Madri Excepcional, based on the results of independent lab testing. This equates to 7.9g of carbohydrates per bottle.

127 Kcal is approximately 5% of the recommended daily calorie intake for women, and 6.35% of the recommended daily calories suggested for a man, following modern NHS guidelines

These guidelines suggest that those looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle should not exceed these calorie limits regularly. If you are looking at restricting calorie intake, then regularly drinking Madri may not be suitable due to this relatively high-calorie content. 

Of course, having one or two high-calorie beers over a weekend won’t significantly affect your health. However, Skinny Lager has transformed brewing methods to lower the calories in lager, creating a uniquely flavourful lager that meets various dietary needs.

During the brewing process, Skinny Lager removes residual carbohydrates and gluten, ensuring that the full-flavoured premium lager still contains the right balance of hops, malt, and bitterness that you would expect from a premium lager such as Madri. The reduced-calorie, gluten-free, and vegan lager allows you to enjoy a drink without unnecessary extra calories.

Madri Nutritional Facts

As mentioned, Madri contains 219 calories per pint. However, in this section, let’s look at some other nutritional facts surrounding Madri. This includes carb content, gluten content and Vegan Society certification. 

In comparison, Skinny Lager contains only 89 calories per 330ml bottle and is also gluten-free certified and Vegan Society certified

Is Madri Gluten-Free Certified?

No, Madri Excepcional contains Water, Barley Malt, Wheat, Barley, Glucose Syrup and Hops as its ingredients. This means that, at present, Madri isn’t suitable for those who struggle with gluten intolerance. 

Madri hasn’t announced any rollout of a gluten-free variety of their popular lager, as of 2024. Many breweries struggle to produce completely gluten-free products as the process is notoriously difficult to get right, whilst still preserving the intended flavour profile of the lager. 

At Skinny Brands, we have managed this process. This allows us to be one of the only fully gluten-free premium lager breweries in the UK which still doesn’t compromise on flavour. Our brewing method allows us to brew our lager using traditional methods and completely remove the gluten to levels where even those with coeliac disease can enjoy it, safely. 

We also created Skinny IPA which goes through the same rigorous process. The refreshing hoppy flavour remains the same, but you won’t experience any unpleasant after-effects, such as bloating, blotches, or stomach cramps, due to the absence of gluten in all of our products. 

Is Madri Vegan Society Certified? 

No, Madri isn’t Vegan Society Certified. In fact, due to the inclusion of Isinglass during the filtration process, Madri can’t claim to be vegetarian either

Unfortunately, for vegans and vegetarians, the UK Government doesn’t require alcoholic beverages to explicitly state the use of animal products when used as part of the fining process to be stated on nutritional information. 

This means that Madri isn’t suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however, Skinny Lager chooses not to use animal-based products at any stage of the brewing or fining process. This makes Skinny Lager one of the only premium lagers commonly available here in the UK to explicitly be suitable for both vegans and vegetarians. 

The Vegan Society, and any certificate offered through its organisation, requires rigorous checks of the production facility to hold the Vegan Society Trademark

Producing a premium lager that not only has 89 calories but can also fit into the diets of those with coeliac disease is important to us here at Skinny Brands, which is why all of our products hold the Vegan Society Trademark. This includes our Skinny IPA and Skinny Cider brands. 

How Many Carbs Are in a Pint of Madri?

From independent third-party tests, a pint of Madri contains 15.8g of carbohydrates per pint. This equates to 9.2g of carbs per 330ml bottle or can. By comparison, Skinny Lager has 3.0g of carbs per 330ml bottle or 5.1g of carbs per pint.
