There are two methods to measure beer alcohol content, which are alcohol by percent of volume and alcohol by percent of weight. In Europe and the United Kingdom, the content of alcohol in beer is given in percentage by volume. However, in the United States, large breweries can give this in alcohol by percent of weight.
