    20% alcohol is like fortified wine which is what street bums drink so they can get drunk fast and cheap.

    It depends on how much you drink. I get drunk pretty easily off of three glasses or a little more of wine.

    It depends on how much you drink but .. Yes !

    Beer is normally around 5% .. and you can get drunk on that.

    Wine can be 11 to 15% .. above 15% and it's a ''fortified wine'' like Sherry or Port.

    Spirits are usually 40%

    You are confused. If something was labelled “20% abv” (or something similar) then it means that 20% of the liquid is alcohol. Beer might be around 5% abv, wine around 15% abv and most spirits 40% abv. In all these things the actual alcohol is the same, there's just different amounts of it in each liquid.

    You can get drunk on any percentage of alcohol, it's all about how much of it you drink.

    It would me, considering that I don't drink.

    Most beer falls between 3.2 and 7% alcohol.

    20% alcohol is 40 proof...you bet it can get you drunk.
