About a half of one and I'm on the floor.

I can't drink alcoholic beverages. :(

Busch Light (ya ya I know) about 4 or 5 and I'm buzzed. Around 12 and I'm drunk.

I like dark beer but hate getting drunk on it because it really gives me a bad hang-over.

To be honest I can't remember... I usually get sick of drinking before I get a good buzz anymore. It's not really from drinking too much either... usually 4 in a day is my limit and I rarely do that any more, I usually just have 1 w/ dinner.

Same here. I only drink a couple times a year and 2 of these usually does the trick. :D

Well, I got drunk about two weeks ago. Bud Light was the beer of choice. 7 and I was buzzed, 13 and I was drunk.

If I'm drinking light beer - several.

If I'm drinking a micro-brew w/ a decent alcohol content - maybe a six pack.

4-5.

Been there enough to give a pretty consistent answer to the question. 4 to 5, without question. It's always at that point when I feel I've turned a corner. ;)

Just a couple. I'm a small guy and could never drink 7 beers, as i'd get full by 4.

If I'm drinking Guinness or another type of stout, then around 4.

If I'm drinking a red beer or a microbrew, usually about 5.

If I'm drinking light beer, then roughly 7 or 8, depending.

If I'm drinking cheap ass beer, then shoot me.

Odd, Guinness has less alchohol than most light beers (Bud, Miller, Coors).

Personally, it all depends for me. Sometimes I can drink quite a few and other times it hits me right and I get to save some money at the bar. Normally though a six pack over a short ammount of time does me good, less if it is powerful stuff.

Usually I begin to feel a little buzz at 4 or 5.
6 to get a good buzz going.

On the rare occasion I do drink, two will usually do the trick. Being a lightweight with low tolerance I must be careful, for me there is a fine line between a nice buzz and becoming nauseous.

It depends on how fast I'm drinking them.....

If I'm poolside in Vegas, I can drink all day.....

If I'm doing a pub crawl trying to set a record, it takes about 3 in 20 minutes.....

When I was 20 I'd drink 6 packs all the time... buzzed, but not totally hungover the next day. I can remember (barely!) drinking 12 a couple of times... which was a lot for a 125 pound skinny lad.

FF 20 years. Two beers and I'm flyin'. Three beers will give me a hangover now.

I meet a buddy for beers every Friday afternoon, and we generally split 2 pitchers of Bud Light, and a shot each. Sometimes, if we're not in any hurry, we'll drink another pounder. That will give me a comfortable buzz. That is assuming I had a decent lunch. If my stomach is empty, all bets are off.

Umm.. No. Guinness is 4.0 or 5.0, most cheap ass beers are 3.0 or 3.5.

2 beers. It allows me to buy a better class of alcohol. :)

The first time I ever got drunk was the only time I got drunk off of beer/malt liquor. 40oz of Mickeys and 2 coronas.

Ever since then, I can't drink enough to get buzz (I full/sick of beer by the 2nd).

Now vodka on the other hand is a different story...

3 on a comletely empty stomach, about 6 on a full one...

1 big one on an empty stomach at 10,000' up while snowboarding.. :lol: memories.

I've lost my tolerance since I rarely drink any more. I can feel it at two.

I can't get drunk on beer. I'm too fat and drink too slow. It usually takes some Tequila to get me drunk.

Guinness Draught (most common in the US) has an abv of 4.1%. (Guinness Foreign Extra Stout has an abv of 7.5%, but is only sold in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean.)

Some common "cheap ass beers":

Bud Light: 4.2% abv
Budweiser: 4.9% abv
Coors Light: 4.2% abv
Coors Original: 5.0% abv
Natural Light: 4.2% abv
Michelob: 5.0% abv
Michelob Light: 4.3% abv
Miller Lite: 4.5% abv
Icehouse: 5.5% abv

So I am afraid that you are incorrect. Most people, for some reason, automatically think that the darkness of a beer correlates to both its thickness and a higher alcohol level, which is not correct.

I'm a lightweight, 1-2 on an empty stomach. 6 and I'm completely drunk, 8 and I'm tossing cookies. And that's when I weighed around 280-300lb. Now that I'm down to around 240 I imagine I'm even more of a lightweight.

Your source is way off. Bud Light is like 3.1% most places. Have you never heard of "three-two" laws?

Until 2002 in Ohio, for example, you could not sell beer that was higher than 3.2 in certain types of stores. Budweiser was 3.9, Bud Light was 3.1.

Now, I grant you that it's going to vary now that laws have loosened up a bit, but a lot of places still have 3.2 laws or 3.5 laws on the books, and so these cheap ass beers will usually be under that limit.

RateBeer is the premier beer information website. Information is usually very accurate, except in cases where the 3.2 law is in affect. Didn't realize you are in one of those poor states that has that law. The abvs I stated are very much accurate: the 3.2 law in your area is the exception, not the rule. (Bud Light is not 3.1 in "most areas" - it is 4.2 in most areas).

And usually, in those areas, even Guinness's abv is lowered to comply.

Usually takes me about 5 beers to start getting buzzed. Depends on whether I've had something to eat or not.

I just bought the special edition Sam Adams Chocolate Bock but haven't tried it yet. Anyone ever have it?

Highest abv beer I've ever had:

Dogfish Head World Wide Stout (http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/Beer/Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=18543) clocking in at 23% abv. And it was damn good. (Though the 18% version was even better).

About four before I start having effects of a buzz.

When I am around 10, I have no idea what the hell I am doing.


If it's whiskey or tequila, well that is another story.

In college... between 5 and 8 depending on the beer. That would get me buzzing, and I'd usually quit around 12 or 13 drinks, with little or no hangover until my last year or so (with a couple of wonderful exceptions). Special occasions called for a fifth.

Now it's like 2 beers to get a buzz (I hardly ever drink). Much cheaper, but the hangover is a good 2 days if I have 3-4. Not a serious hangover, just tired etc. Took me a while to figure out that was what was doing it, since I was used to drinking so much more a few years ago. I don't really get drunk these days.

Seems I follow others in that I could drink like a fish when I was in college, but now, FFing 20 years, I catch a buzz within 1-2 beers and get downright drunk after ~5. And I don't believe all that crap about building up tolerance because I drink (and rate) beer almost every day.

Morf! Nice to see another RBer on this site! Rate on, bro!

I'm a lightweight so I can only drink 3-4 then I start to get tipsy.

I'm Chinese/Taiwanese American so I was born with the Asian redness factor (many many Asians lack an enzyme in their liver to break down alcohol and unfortunately I'm one of them :( )

Depends on whether I've eaten or not. If I have eaten it usually takes me about 4 or 5 to get buzzed and after that I start getting drunk. If I haven't eaten I can be pretty buzzed after 3. Although I'm speaking in terms of 16 oz beers. Because thats usually what we buy.

11-26-04, 12:47 AM
I usually drink a darker beer, such as newcastle or yeungling...probably about 8-10 of those will get me buzzing pretty good.

You FUCKING LIAR!!!

4-5 buzzed, my ass. If this is true, you really are a pusser.




The friend I knew polished off a bottle of Jack with me in a single night.

Me? Buzzed? I stopped counting that high long ago. That's somethin' rookies do.
