Was wondering if you knew the alcohol volume in Guinness and Budweiser?
Draught Guinness, both in cans and on tap in many bars, is 4% alcohol by volume (3.2% by weight, which is why it can be sold legally in gas stations in Oklahoma, well known as a "3.2 state"). Bud is 5% by volume (4% by weight), but also produces a less alcoholic beer for Oklahoma and Utah. You'll find more on alcohol content here and here.
