As a server or bartender, it’s important to know the ABV of the beers you’re working with – not just for making recommendations to customers, but for monitoring the drunkenness levels of your patrons too!

The alcohol content of beer differs across styles. On average, beer ABV sits between 4 and 6% but can go as low as 0 or as high as 67% for the strongest beer in the world – Brewmeister’s Snake Venom.
