That is a legitimate question in AL and MS.

My dentist today: "I like wheat beers!"
Me: "Oh well I just finished a dark wheat, known as a dunkelweizen."
Her: "What's that like?"
Me: "A dark hefeweizen."
Her: "Oh I don't like those, too heavy."
Me: *confused look*
Her: "Oh wait no I don't like Hoegaarden. That's too strong."

I was buying a Green Flash 4 pack of witbier which was $14. The check out clerk commented the high price was due to a high alcohol content. It was actually 4.7% ABV. But she had a point. If not based in reality, then based on consumer perspective it is assumed that the value of beer can be measured by the alcohol content.

Yup, my neighbors caught me doing it about three weeks after I moved in. Now I can't brew a batch without giving half of it away...

Well the more malt/adjuncts the higher the abv and cost to brew, so that does make some sense.

Not if you understand economics. The price to make something has nothing to do with its value. If it did, brewers would be brewing saffron beer and we'd pay $1000 a 6-pack for it.
