More US-States Allowing High-Alcohol Beer

Mittwoch 11. November 2009 von htm

Beer with alcohol levels two or three times higher than your typical Budweiser or Coors are being sold in a growing number of states. North Carolina, Alabama and West Virginia are among the states that have raised or removed caps on beer’s alcohol content in recent years, and Mississippi and Iowa are considering similar legislation. The average beer has about 4.65 percent alcohol, but states like Alabama now allow beer with up to 13.9 percent alcohol, and brews sold in other states may have as much as 16 percent alcohol by volume.
