“Police are warning the public not to get caught out by higher alcohol levels in craft beer.
” ‘For the last couple of years there has been huge growth in the craft beer market, and I think that’s where people are sometimes getting caught out,’ Alcohol Harm Prevention Officer Sergeant Kyle Bruning said.
” ‘Whereas they used to be able to handle or feel comfortable driving, and perhaps be under the limit, if they had a couple of drinks of standard beer, now with that same amount of drink but with the alcohol content being higher, they’re just getting caught out a bit.’ “
