Guest Hoyle00cdn Posted January 24, 2008 Report Share Posted January 24, 2008 Most Canadians pride in our beer being better then American beer, but it was recently explained to me that most of that praise is based on a myth. From what I was told the myth was born out of misconstrued mathematics. American alcohol content in beer is measured in weight, not volume (as in Canada). When American beer is converted into alcohol % by volume, it's still lighter but by way less then a percent. So technically, the beer may taste bad, but it's roughly the same alcohol content. That's all fine and dandy, but..... This doesn't explain why I can drink American beer so much easier. When I drink American beer, I drink more, get less drunk, and spend most of the time taking bathroom breaks. On rare occasions, I even sobber up WHILE I'm drinking American beer. Can anyone help enlighten me? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
