    im into light beer and since i deliver for budweiser/anheiser bush i mainly drink bud light, bud select, and natural light, - i threw down 5 or 6 natural lights last night and hardly felt a thing. whenever i buy coors light or miller light i get a much better buzz on less beer, i know millers slogan is tastes great and less filling but is it more powerfull as well. when i was in reno last week i got pretty smashed on some michelob ultra's, i broke down and bought a few mickeys 24 ouncers today and im throwing one back as i type, this malt liquor should do the trick for me.

    If you want a buzz get a beer that has a higher alochol content like a Irish/british stout or imperial stout. Save the american made bud for a guest you don't like. I rather drink urine from a cat, than an American beer from the top 3s unless it's a Michelob bock.

    btw: I would guess a cat's urine would be more tasty also ;)

    Ahem....Most Americans drink "American Style" beer because that's what they prefer. Period. To each his own! ;f

    No, 97...Lite is'nt more powerful. It's either 4.5 or 5.0 per cent by volume, can't remember which right now.

    If you want a serious buzz get your paws on a bottle of Samichlaus. It's 14% strong.

    See this site on beers:

    http://www.ratebeer.com/default.asp

    See this too:

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A German brewer has concocted what he says is the world's strongest beer, a potent drink with an alcohol content of 25.4 percent that is served in a shot glass.

    "Everyone who has tried it is enthusiastic. It tastes like a quirky mixture of beer and sherry," said Bavarian brewer Harald Schneider.

    Schneider, who lives in southern Germany where beer is a tradition, said his beer fermented for 12 weeks for an alcohol content twice that of Germany's other strongest beers.

    "People will only be able to drink two or three glasses, otherwise they'll drop like flies," he said.

    Schneider expects the holders of the world's strongest beer, the Boston Beer Company, to put up a fight.

    "I'm pretty sure the Americans have something up their sleeve."

    Most powerful beer I ever made was a take on an oktoberfest with my own little twists. Used way more malt and had to use champagne yeat because the akamahol was up around 16.5% and would have killed ale or lager yeast.


    Tasted reeeeeal smooov though!;c

    There's been some discussion here at work lately. I'm not much of a drinker, so I was unaware that anything over 3.5-5% in alcohol was even AVAILABLE in this country as a 'beer'. I knew that 'malt-liquor' went somewhere to 7%(?). One gent just recently visited a joint with over a hundred draft selections, one of which is over 10%!
    Mostly import beer, but some domestic stuff, also.


    Did our state or federal laws change regarding this in the last 7-10yrs?

    Generally it's been state laws that have changed. In Oklahoma, for example, you can't serve anything over 3.5%/vol (or somewhere around that) for on site consumption. I believe there's a limit for off site as well. Utah doesn't allow anything over 3.2% no matter where you buy it. Also, many states had/have laws requireing beers over a certain % have/had to be called "malt liquor" regardless of whether they were a barleywine (YUM!) or Colt .45 (YUCK!).

    Oklahoma laws have changed a bit the past few years.

    Grocery/convenience stores can only sell 3.2 beer.

    Any beer higher than 3.2 in alcohol content can only be sold at a liquor store. It can also be had by the glass/bottle in a bar.

    There are some really nice brews out there with a high alcohol level.

    Americans like the swill from the big 3 because of the marketing budgets of the big 3. That stuff tastes like ice water. Sorely lacking in flavor.

    The best beer in the world has to bee Yuengling!!! It's the oldest brewery in America. I think that it's the best bang for the buck. I can drink it from a can, or a bottle!

    i picked up a few olde english 800 24 ouncers with the 7.5% alcohol by volume and will give them a shot in a few, what other non-tough-to-find beers are out there with a big % of alcohol in them. ive never seen Yuengling, dogfish or avery. i drank some king cobra 5.9% the other night and it worked out pretty good. if i cant find any high volume stuff i'll have to settle for quatity over quality.
