How Many Beers Does It Take To Be Legally Intoxicated?

Question: Can I be legally intoxicated and guilty of a DUI in Georgia if I've only had a few beers?
Answer: Yes, a few beers can put someone over the .08 limit for DUI in Georgia (and even under .08 can be DUI!). Beers have different amounts of alcohol, so whether you've had a Bud Light, Budweiser, Miller Lite, Coors Light, Natural Light, Corona Extra, Busch Light, Busch, Heineken, Miller High Life, Miller Genuine Draft or a Growler with a popular craft brew, you could be risking a DUI.
And of course some beers have far more alcohol than other beers. For instance, watch out for those German, Irish, English, Dutch and Belgian beers because in many cases their alcohol content greatly exceeds that of those produced by beer companies like Anheuser-Busch, Miller, Molson-Coors, Yuengling, Pabst, Labatt or our own Georgia brewersSweetwater Brewing Co., Atlanta Brewing Co., or Terrapin Brewing Co. of Athens, GA. So whether you're enjoying a Lager (such as a pale, lager, Bock, Dunkel, Helles, Oktoberfestbier / Märzen, Pilsner, Schwarzbier, or Vienna lager), Brown Ale, Mild Ale, Old Ale, Pale, Stout or Wheat Beer - know what you are consuming to be on the safe side!
