Default Vin-O-Meter

would this work for beer also?
"Instantly measures alcohol content of dry wines. Easy to use—fill reservoir with wine, let one or two drops drip from the bottom, then turn upside down; where the wine stops on the scale is the alcohol content. 0-25% range, 1% increments"

No, too many residual sugars in beer plus the accuracy at the low end isn't good.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
