Did you know?

Sometimes it's hard to know if something is a beer or a malt liquor because drinks can look and be packaged the same. One way to know is if the title includes 'Ice', the drink is a malt liquor based on the brewing process. For example, Bud, Bud Light, and Bud Ice may all be in the same section of a store and look alike, but Bud Ice is stronger and is classified as a malt liquor because of the way it's made. A standard drink of beer is 12 ounces while a standard drink of malt liquor is 8-10 ounces. Other common examples of malt liquor are Colt 45, Mike's Hard Lemonade, Old English, and Smirnoff Ice.
