"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!"
