Myth 1

A 12 fluid ounce (fl oz) beer has the same amount of alcohol as most other alcoholic drinks.

Fact: An average 12 fl oz beer has about 4.2-5% alcohol content, 8-9 fl oz of malt liquor has about 7% alcohol content, 5 fl oz of wine has about 12% alcohol content, and 1.5 fl oz of distilled spirits (gin, rum, tequila, vodka, whiskey, etc.) has about 40% alcohol content.
