Well when you pump life into a thread that's 4 or 5 months old, laws change.

Back to why beer is typically no more that 6% and wine is typically no more than 14%;

Yeast feeds on sugar in the fermentation process and is literally killed off from acute alcohol intoxification, at about 13% to 14 %, thus the limit for wine. Add distilled or hard liquor to wine and you've got Port or Sherry which increases the strength to 18-20%.

Now beer, being made of barley, corn, rice, and other cereals, the fermentation process is artificially halted at 3% to 6%.

Now for distilled liquors such as brandy, gin, whisky, scotch, rye, bourbon, rum, vodka... these contain between 40 and 75 % pure alcohol, and if it's got 57% by volume or 49% alcohol by weight or greater, it can be mixed with gunpowder and be ignited.

Speaking of igniting alcohol, ever had a stormcloud? I remember that it has 151 rum on top and you light that, then if you're smart, you blow the flame out before you attempt to drink it.

The science of it aside, I'd wager nobody here can tell the difference between 3.2 Coors and "regular" Coors or any of the other major brands. Some are making the assumptions that those regular brews are upwards of 6% which I don't think you'll find true short of malt liquors. To that end I'll agree with the psychological impact comments.

Yeah you are wrong. People around here don't drink Coors. those that drink coors live out of state dude. If they live here and drink it, they are from out of state.

All of my Colorado friends have never had a Coors beer in their house. Crap, they'd drink a Michelob before a Coors.

Oh yeah, most of the people I know are also Colorado natives.

Hmmm, that explains a lot. I used to drink a whole pitcher of Coors just to get relaxed enough to play serious league darts. I was beginning to suspect Colorado had a 3.2 law.

I used to like Coors Extra Gold ok, or I'd drink that Coors Ice.

The best beer came from Coors in Golden at least at one time; Henry Weinhard's. And you'd slap your grandma if you ever tried that Killian's Red at the "Short Tour" there in Golden.

The only light beer that I would drink was Miller light because my old boss bought it for me or even better- Beck's Light.
