Beer Alcohol Content List

There are so many amazing beers out there it can be difficult to keep track. Micro-brews, macro-brews, and of course, homebrews!

How do you find the alcohol content of a beer?

When you know the original gravity, subtract the final gravity from it and multiply that number by 131.25. This tells you your beers alcohol content based on a percentage of 12oz volume.

Here’s that in a formula: (FG – OG) x 131.25 = ABV% and here’s a handy Beer Calories Calculator.

Packaged beer is required to have it’s ABV printed on its label. One Standard drink in the United States is approximatly 14 grams of pure alcohol, which is a 12 ounce, 5% beer.

A few most common beer ABV’s are:

  • Bud light alcohol content = 5%
  • Guiness alcohol content = 4.2%
  • Stella alcohol content = 4.8%

And here is an evolving beer alcohol content list of a lot of different types and styles of the beer. There’s +200 here, so most likely you’ll find what you are after.

I also started using this list to track beer recipes, so the best ones are also listed next to each beers alcohol-by-volume (ABV).
