Craft Beers and DWIs
Craft beers have become increasingly popular, and have spread all throughout the triangle. While these breweries have helped to establish a new aspect of local culture, craft beers are often brewed with higher ABV (alcohol by volume). Many craft beers range from 5-10% ABV, but some craft beers can have ABV well over 10-20%.
To understand how strong this alcoholic beverage is, compare that to a Budweiser Select, which has 2.5% ABV. This means that one craft beer can have the same amount of alcohol as 3 or 4 cans of a regular beer. While these craft beers can be enjoyable, and you are certainly allowed to drink if you are of age, there is a distinct risk that you can be pulled over for a DWI if you have had only one craft beer and decide to drive.
