Hey Sam, I switched to Scotch. No carbs, and more to the point.
Hey, Alcohol has calories also. It is energy. I'm not quite sure of the metabolism mechanism with it, but an overabundance of alcohol will help make you fat.
That said, I'm not at liberty to tell you what my brother-in-law and I did to a fine Ardbeg 10 year old single malt last weekend, but it wasn't pretty. :^)

Another Atkins testemonial here:
On March 11th 2002, I weighed in at 250 lbs.
Today, (11-18-02) I weigh 181 lbs.
The diet is easy, I eat plenty and never go hungry or feel deprived.
I have more energy, need only 6 hrs. sleep per night instead of the 8-9 I needed before, my Blood Pressure, Heart Rate and Bad Cholestorol levels are all way down as well.

I shoulda known a technician would show up. You're right. Alcohol still means calories; in fact Atkins' diet books talk about alcohol being a "slow down factor" in weight loss, actually having more impact on metabolism mechanisms than calories would have.
That said, a scotch or two has less carbohydrates than an equivalent amount of beer.
