There are some methods of measuring the alcohol contents of various beverages. Find details on each below:
ABV ? Alcohol by Volume?It simply represents the amount of volume consumed by ethanol compared to the entire volume of the drink. It is expressed as a percentage.
Proof ? This word is used among the strongest spirits. To compute a liquor?s verification you simply multiply the ABV by 2. The theoretic maximum possible strength of any drink is therefore 200-proof. Actually though the maximum for distilled spirits is 191-proof since not all of the water can be distilled from ethanol.

ABW ? Alcohol by Weight? This is comparable to ABV but instead of the quantity consumed by the ethanol its mass is used instead. Beer brewers often used this measurement in states that require limits on strength of beer sold in food markets (for example 3.2 beer in Oklahoma). This is preferred over ABV in these cases because the ABW is roughly 80% of the ABV. Beer that is 4% alcohol by volume can be sold and still meet the 3.2 ABW limit.
