Beer Volume Description

This is a term related to Alchohol by Volume which is abbreviated as ABV or alc/vol. It is a common measure of the amount of alcohol present in any given volume of alcoholic drink and is expressed in alcohol percentage. It shows how much alcohol (ethanol – chemical compound) content there is in a beverage. A Unit of alcohol is used to indicate the actual alcohol quantity within a volume of alcoholic substance and to provide information on total alcohol consumption. One unit of alcohol contains 10 milliliters or 8 grams of pure alcohol. Typical servings of drinks usually contain 1-3 units of alcohol.

Beer volume is measured in some of the standard volume or capacity units as well as some additional words describing beer servings (sometimes those words represent the container beer is served in) Units for beer volume:

  • The unit of volume - Pint, equals one-eighth of a gallon. The unit size can vary depending on the measurement systems – British imperial and the United States customary
  • Ounce, Liter, gallon
  • Can, bottle, keg, glass, Schooner (425mL glass), case, bomber (22-ounce bottle), growler (64-ounce bottle), pot (kind of a beer glass

The alcohol percentage content for beer is on average 4-10 %. Beer also has IBU: International Bitterness Units which estimates bitterness of hop on a scale from 1 to 100. The Standard Reference Method or SRM shows the color of the beer, the higher the number, the darker the beer. Gravity in alcoholic beverages refers to specific gravity or otherwise defined as the relative density of the substance (wort or must) compared to the density of a reference substance, usually water. Gravity is measured by hydrometer. The density of a wort or must is influenced by their sugar content. The amplitude between the original (gravity before fermentation) and final gravity (measured when fermentation completes) indicates how much sugar has changed into alcohol. Consequently, the bigger the difference, the more alcohol content present and the stronger the drink. This is why, for example, strong beers are called high gravity beers and session or small beers are referred to as low gravity beers. Sometimes the final gravity of a strong beer can be lower than the one of a session beer due to the larger quantity of alcohol content (higher amplitude between OG and FG).
