Alcohol is made by fermenting and distilling natural starch and sugar. This means that lager can contain a lot of calories. For instance, a pint of lager with 4% ABV can contain 180 calories, similar to a slice of pizza.

Lager, like any kind of alcohol, can stimulate the appetite and make calorific post-pub fare like kebabs and chips look really appealing.
