What's worse for your liver: Beer or Hard Alcohol?
Assuming you reach the same level of toxicity in your consumption of each.

that's the key- i've never heard of someone ODing on beer, so much volume to injest. but hard EtOH is so easy to consume too much.

hard liquor is terrible for your stomach lining. not sure which is worse for your liver though.

considering hard alcohol tends to have a higher percentage by volume, i'd say you're better off drinking beer.

I'm going to say based on this, they are the same. The alcohol content in each should have the same effect on your liver. IOW- one shot of whiskey should have the same effect as one beer, one glass of wine, etc. I think most people with liver damage probably drink hard alcohol simply because you get more alcohol by ingesting the same amount of liquid.

Intuitively I would say they have the same effect. A BAC of .2 will have the same effect on your liver no matter where it came from, all other things being equal.
The only possible difference I could see is that hard alcohol will elevate your BAC more rapidly because you can ingest more in a given period of time. This will be more of a shock to your liver than the relatively slow rate of increase resulting from beer.
