Know the Difference in Beer Styles

There is a wide variety of beer styles available for you to sample. Keep in mind that the percentage of alcohol in beer can vary from about 3 percent to over 10 percent by volume. While you cannot determine alcohol content based on beer color or age, some styles, such as barley wines, doppelbocks and many “fest” beers, often contain a higher percentage of alcohol than other beers. Your server may be able to provide you with additional alcohol-content information.
