High ABV Poll Results

First off, I just wanted to thank all of you who participated in last week’s poll, “What’s the Highest ABV Beer You’ve Had?

The results were pretty much where I expected them to be, but the number of you that had higher and 25% ABV in your beer was a surprise — not a huge surprise, mind you, but one nonetheless. No one had topped out their ABV at 5%, which is what I expected.

The Results

The results are in.

After reviewing the results, I quickly came to the conclusion that I had a couple of shortcomings in the poll itself. The final numbers are great, but I think I should have asked a couple of more questions. For instance, a geographic location or, at the very least, the name/brand of your highest ABV beer would have been quite interesting. I realized the name/brand issue almost immediately upon publishing the poll, but I couldn’t amend it as some of you are quick on the draw and I already had a couple of submissions within minutes of launching it.

Perhaps, I’ll run the poll again at a later date and include the omitted questions, as well. At any rate, thanks again for participating.
