      Hi Tracey,
      As a rule of thumb, the higher the ABV the greater the calories, so as we are selling a Perry at 3.8% ABV you would expect this to have about 150 calories per pint, and then our most potent 8.5% ABV to have about 250 to 300 calories per pint.
      It can be difficult to decide, but best to come along have a drink or two and enjoy yourself.
      See you soon
      Alan
