These definitely aren’t the piss water “beers” that you swilled in back in college. These wild craft brews will put hair on your chest while burning your throat. That’s because craft beer has become such a distinguished art form that beer brewers have moved on from simply attempting to make their beer taste delicious and into the realm of punching you in the face with alcohol content.
While a regular old brew like Budweiser likes to make fun of craft brews in their snarky Super Bowl ads- they only have 5% ABV (alcohol by volume) and Bud Light has only 4.2 %. Meanwhile some craft brews are rocking between 15% and 67% ABV. Vodka is 40%ABV So when you see college bros knocking back a case of buds in a night and bragging about it, just know that they aren’t drinking a “man’s beer.”
Not craft beer drinkers.
