How many beers equal one shot of liquor?

Answer

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one typical 12-ounce beer equals one 1.5 ounce shot of liquor. These are also equivalent to a 5-ounce glass of wine.

Each of the drinks contains .54 ounces of alcohol. This information is important when considering people's blood alcohol content, which represents how much alcohol they have in their bodies. In addition to the number of drinks consumed, blood alcohol content is also affected by how fast drinks are consumed, the amount of food in a person's stomach and the person's weight and gender. Medications or drugs do not influence the blood alcohol content although they can still impact behavior.
