Spurious precision

Written by kevin

I’m sitting in a hotel bar in Benin City, drinking Crystal beer brewed at the Bendel Brewery next door.

On the label it gives the strength as “5% +- 0.5%”. This is a lot more honest than other Nigerian beers, claiming to be exactly 5.2% when everyone knows it’s more like “somewhere between 2 and 8 percent”.
