Beer and liquor are both alcoholic beverages that are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission. Liquors are considered hard alcohol, while beers are more recreational beverages, which are, of course, served at bars. Still, they are also served at sporting events, bowling alleys, restaurants, and festivals. Liquor contains more alcohol than beer.
Generally, liquor has an alcohol content of twelve percent or more, while beer is usually less than five percent. Drinks that surpass this are called malt liquor, lager, or ale. Hard liquor has fewer carbs than wine or beer. However, the calorie content of alcohol is higher.
