1 Pound = 16 ounces

ounces used to measure beer is a measure of volume, not weight. A gallon of beer weighs about 8 pounds. Therefore 16 fluid ounces (one pint or 1/8 gallon) weighs about 1.0625 lbs.


The weight of a fluid ounce of beer will vary with the recipe and completeness of fermentation. Home brewers call this 'gravity' and measure it with a hygrometer. The same is true for wine.

1 pound always equals 16 ounces in weight, but a fluid ounce is 4% more in the US than in the UK. For details, look for 'pint' in Wikipedia.
