Beer vs. Wine in Your System

Because wine and beer can vary greatly in their alcohol percentages, they can impact your body in very different ways. When trying to determine how beer or wine will affect you, it is helpful to keep the following in mind:

  • Beer tends to have a lower percentage of alcohol than wine
  • Because of their varying alcohol percentages, you have to consume more beer than wine in order to get to the same level of intoxication
  • One glass of wine is typically 8oz, whereas a pint of beer is typically 16oz
  • Wine can have much higher sugar levels than beer, which can lead to dehydration and more severe symptoms of intoxication

Regardless of the type of alcoholic beverage you consumed, if you are accused of drinking and then driving, you may face serious legal repercussions.
