A standard drink is considered to be a 12oz pour in the United States. The chart below shows some common examples of beers and the amount of calories in each. It should come as no surprise (hopefully) that the more alcohol in beer, the more calories it will have.
One thing to keep in mind is the type of glass that you are drinking from and how full that is when counting calories. For example, an Imperial Pint contains more liquid than the standard pint, and thus, a higher caloric value. The type of beer will also give you a clue to how many calories it may have, as different beer styles tend to result in different caloric loads, on average.
