strong beer

strong beer
Ordinary American beer, as made from malt and hops. This term, though practically obsolete as recently as 1906, was once in familiar use as the name of beer made of malt and hops, and so called to distinguish it from "small beer," which was compounded of molasses and yeast with the addition of either ginger or spruce, and which contained a very small percentage of alcohol. Strong beer was rich in the intoxicating principle, analysis showing eight per cent alcohol. The courts had no difficulty in determining that it was an intoxicating liquor.
