September is filled with occasions to celebrate by downing a couple of cold ones – Labor Day, Oktoberfest, and the start of football season to name a few. And if you’re in Colorado, you’re probably enjoying a craft beer from one of the 200+ different breweries our state has to offer.
The problem with craft beer, when it comes to drinking and driving laws at least, is that it’s tough to understand how much alcohol you are consuming in one sitting. The old rule of one drink equals one twelve ounce 5% alcohol by volume beer is not useful anymore. Craft beers are often poured in glasses ranging from 6 to 16 ounces, and can contain anywhere between 4-18% alcohol by volume.
The “Craft Beer Drinkers Happy Hour to Sober Guide” (below) is designed to help you:
- Understand what the standard drink equivalents of some common styles of craft beers are.
- Estimate your blood alcohol level.
- Understand how long it takes to sober up.
Remember – don’t drink and drive. Use a designated driver or call a cab. If you do get pulled over, be sure to know your rights at a DUI stop.
