5% ABV Beers

Five percent is a very reasonable ABV rating these days, all things considered. With the explosion of Imperial IPAs and boozy Farmhouse Ales, it almost feels like 5% is somewhat weak (it's not).

That said, 5% is a great place to be for a beer. For starters, it's weak enough to have more than one at a brewery. Second, it's not considered a high abv beer. Third, if your goal is to feel the effects of the alcohol (drink responsibly!), then a 5% ABV beer is going to get you there much faster than a 4% ABV beer.

As for beer styles, you can find almost any type in the 5% range. Just take a look at the list below. You will see Helles, Brown Ales, Milk Stouts, Hefeweizens, etc.
