Is malt liquor worse than beer?

Malt liquor tends to be higher in alcohol than comparatively priced domestic beers, but then again, many craft beers have high ABV, too, so it's hard to say that one is worse for you than the other. The safest conclusion is that all alcohol impacts the liver, so drink responsibly.

Why is malt liquor stronger than beer?

While typical beer is made primarily from barley, water, and hops, malt liquors tend to make much greater use of inexpensive adjuncts such as corn, rice, or dextrose. Use of these adjuncts, along with the addition of special enzymes, results in a higher percentage of alcohol than an average beer.
