Honestly, with the topic in mind, there are so many factors like weight, alcohol tolerance, gender, and even race that can invariably affect any given answer. All that aside, it would be fun to tackle some of these factors and let you know how many buds light you need to drink to get drunk.
Budweiser: the American Lager
First things first, though, what kind of alcoholic beverage is Bud Light, especially for those who have never heard, seen, or tasted it? Bud Light is and was the brainchild of Adolphus Busch, a German immigrant who came to America back in the 1850s and married American heiress to the Anheuser Brewery, Lilly Anheuser.
From there, Adolphus worked in Eberhard Anheuser, his father-in-law’s brewery, and developed and introduced innovations that changed the game of the alcohol brewing industry. Budweiser, the Anheuser-Busch signature American lager beer, is medium-bodied, crisp, and brewed with only the best barley malt and a variety of hops which gives it full of flavor.
Getting Drunk with Budweiser Light
A regular Budweiser beer contains about 5% AbV; the Bud Ice is at 5.5%, while the Bud Light is said to be at 4.2 %. What does this mean for drinkers and non-drinkers alike? It means that at a regular rate, Bud Light is on the average AbV levels of standard drinks in the US. It also means that it will take at least a few of these bud lights to reach 0.08% BAC (Blood Alcohol Content), which is considered to be the percentage level of being legally drunk in the majority of states in the US.
As mentioned, though, there are several factors that can affect the rate and quantity by which one can get drunk by drinking a bud light lager beer. First off, that must be considered, and although it might not sit well with so many out there is the gender of the person drinking bud light. Why, might you ask? It is because gender also has a role, as is human anatomy. Men and women are not equal in the sense that there are anatomical features that vary between genders.
Some studies show that at an average rate, it would more likely take three bottles or cans of bud light in an hour to get a woman drunk and about four bottles or cans for a man to do so.
Weight is also a huge factor; as peculiar as it may seem, people with lower weight counts will also need about the average number of drinks to reach the percentage of being legally drunk. An example of this case would be if a man weighs about 100 lbs, he would most likely need about three bottles or cans to get to 0.08% BAC while a man who weighs 200 lbs to 220 lbs will likely need about six bottles or cans of bud light to get to the limit or 0.08% BAC.
Other factors include the drink involved, which in this case, we are talking about the Budweiser Light. The metabolic rate by which the person is able to process alcohol in his body gives him or her a higher tolerance to alcohol, meaning more bottles or cans in order to get that drunk feeling. As well as the age of the person drinking. Younger folks might hold down more drinks than older drinkers. The bottom line is that each person is unique, being every case of wanting to get drunk with a Bud Light will also be particular and unique.
