9% beer is insane.
That totally defeats the purpose of beer. To hydrate and quench.

7% is even too high.

5% is normal............even thou 4% is standard for American beer.

Wine is normally 12%

A 40% alchoholic drink if mixed right at 3:1 is normally 10%.

I disagree, I've knocked down a few of these tonight.


I normally just drink Vodka or Whiskey straight but on occasion I enjoy some Molson XXX or Guinness or Bud Ice. So I started drinking some XXX with my steak at the begining of the game tonight. GO TRIBE!! :P

its about 10 bucks for a 12oz bottle, but i think it is worth it for a once in a while splurge!

That'* not surprising. I got a bottle of Sam Adams Triple Bock once, it was an 8oz. bottle IIRC, and it was very expensive too. It has 17.5% abv, and tastes almost like a wine. It coats the glass like you wouldn't believe!

Although I make my own beer, and enjoy the end result, i do like to indulge in that stuff my southern friends like to call beer.

After all, you can drink the stuff all day and the only effect is to make you **** lots.

BTW alcohol content is measured differently in Canada. Even if the label says 5% it'* still stronger than an American measured 5% I forget how that works but it can be looked up somewhere.

That is a myth... canadian beers are just as strong as american beers.. until someone can find a reputable source that proves otherwise, it is a big myth

JMH, you brew too?

You owe me a bottle for the filter 2000SilverBullet and I just picked up for you. You can deliver it in person at WCBF '08.

Paul and I just put the last two bottles of my WCBF 06 homebrew in the refer for later.
