    in the late 60's when in many locations there was 3.2% beer sold for late teens and "6" % . It was felt that some just sold all 3.2 with some labeled as 6, but that none of the mainstream 6% was that high.

    But I think the labels said "not MORE than 6%" if I recall from my tragically-terminated beer drinking days.

      Buy beer in a bar or a grocery store and it was 3.2% alcohol, maximum, by weight.  The minimum age for bars and grocery store beer was 18.  Beer bought at the package store (known as "liquor stores") was above 3.2% and was known as "6% beer".  It was all garbage and what I now know to be real beer simply was not available, and I put away many gallons of 3.2 during my college years.  The only thing mass produced beers are good for is mixing with tomato juice for red beers.  That would be a waste of real beer but junk beers ain't bad that way.  I'm not a beer snob, either, I just don't like Bud, Coors, etc.
