What is the alcoholic content of the various liquors?

I need to know about the major labels.


Answer by  TheAnswerFairy (2345)

In general, beer is 3-8 percent alcohol, wine is about 9-15%, and most hard liquors like vodka, rum, brandy, etc. are 40%. Gin is 45%


Answer by  John (9008)

Most hard liquor is 80 proof, which means that it contains 40% alcohol. This can vary, however, especially for codials and liquers. The only way to tell for certain is to check the label, which will provide either a percentage or "proof" content; the percentage is half of the proof.

Bud 5% Coors 5% Busch 4. 6% Foster's 5. 1% Coors Light 4. 1% Michelob 5% Miller 5% Sam Adams Boston Lager 4. 8%

Most liquors are about 30 to 40 percent alcohol. Most bars serve most of their liquors in this range. 151 is 75% and everclear is about 90%.


Answer by  Gingercakes (920)

Well, it all goes by the proof. 100% proof means it is flammable and 50% alcohol. Vodka is usually 80 proof, which means it is 40% alcohol. Beer is usually approx 5% alcohol, unless you live in a 3. 2% state.


Answer by  John (9008)

It varies greatly. You divide the "proof" in half to get alcohol percentage; most are "80 proof," which means 40% alcohol. You have to look at each to tell, though.

Well it is hard to list the alcohol content of every type of liquor available. If you want to know the content of a specific type you can either look it up on the brands website or one the actually bottle itself. Each bottle will list the alcohol content by volume on the label.
