Can anyone recommend a Mexican dark cerveza with less than 5% alcohol? Does one even exist?
Victoria at 4.0% and Indio at 4.1% work for me. Low (but not too low) alcohol - and tasty!

Alcohol content by weight or volume?

I don't know about Mexico standards, but in the US alcohol content in beer is measured by weight. Any beer that exceeds 4% is considered malt liquor, which is measured by volume! 4% by weight equals slightly over 5% by volume.




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

We clean the canal here in Yuma in December. It's where we get our drinking water. I wonder if they're connected? Probably not. We drink our water with a knife and fork in small bites.

Yes, they exist, but not by much. You should probably try the Dos Equis Ambar which is at 4.7% or the Bohemia Obscura at 4.9%. Both very available in most locations on the mainland.

I didnt make it through my 24 pack of Noche Buena from last year, either. It's OK, but I prefer Mexican lagers that have flavor to the heavier ales.

Although, it's a bit of a reach to call Dos Equis Ambar a heavy ale. It's even less interesting than Newcastle, for my palette.

It takes a bit to keep me away from Pacifico and/or Bohemia Clara/Clasica.

Michelada


The true test of any beer is how well it tastes in a Michelada

U. S. Beer versus Malt Liquor


In U.S. code, Beer AND Malt Beverages are BOTH defined simply as above an ABV of 0.5% (versus non-alcoholic) with differing requirements for ingredients used in the brewing process.

States, (now) primarily for taxation purposes, vary in their legal definitions by alcohol content.

From Wikipedia:

" ...... The confusing and inconsistent use of the term "malt liquor" has to do with the vagaries of American alcoholic beverage regulations, which can vary from state to state. In some states, "malt liquor" refers to any alcoholic beverage made by fermenting grain and water; in these states a non-alcoholic beer may also be called a non-alcoholic or non-intoxicating malt liquor.
In some states, products labeled "beer" must fall below a certain alcohol content, and beers that exceed the mark must be labeled as "malt liquor". While ordinary beers in the United States average around 5% alcohol by volume, malt liquors typically range from 6% up to 9% alcohol by volume. A typical legal definition is Colorado's Rev. Stat. ss. 12-47-103(19), which provides that:

"Malt Liquors" includes beer and shall be construed to mean any beverage obtained by the alcoholic fermentation of any infusion or decoction of barley, malt, hops or any other similar products, or
any combination thereof, in water containing more than three and two-tenths percent of alcohol by weight.

Alcohol percentages measured by weight translate into larger figures when re-expressed as alcohol percentages by volume, because ethanol is less dense than water."

It looks like the conversion factor is 1.25, so 3.2% by weight is 4% by volume.

I guess the old "3.2 beer" referred to the ABW number?

Wow, what a bunch of old school beer drinkers! Of course, I prefer the old style regular beers, with a low ABV content, especially most Mexican beers in a bottle.

Never bring me a Budweiser or any Coors beer, especially in a can! I won't drink it, and consider them right-wing, beer belly beers. ( think Hank Hill)

But for years now craft beers, have been very popular, especially in San Diego, some call the capital of Craft beer. I myself, love to go down to "Ballast Point Brewing" in San Diego's Little Italy, for lunch and a few craft beers.

I think you would be out of place asking asking for a Bud or even a Corona, in a bar that serves mostly craft beer.

Even in Tijuana, they now serve craft beer, in their newer restaurants and bars.

The alcohol content( ABV) for an average craft beer is 5.9 percent, and the heavy beers are well over 8 percent, and you don't call those beers, malt liquor.

A "Blonde ale beer, with a low ABV content, would be similar to a Corona beer. You can be overwhelmed by the selection of craft beers both in the states and in Mexico. It's always good when they let you sample beers, so you don't get stuck with a beer that sucks.
