The peak holiday social calendar season is fast-approaching and you’ll undoubtedly have a great number of events to navigate. From your office’s infamous karaoke/scarf monograming party to the New Year’s Eve Midnight Mud Run, a certain level of merrymaking is on the horizon. But HEINEKEN USA wants to remind you that just because alcohol may be in excess, doesn’t mean you have to be. In fact, the global trend in consumer behavior toward moderation signifies that young adults recognize that responsible drinking leads to greater enjoyment of the moment. And it all begins with knowing your number.
Knowing your number means knowing your alcohol limit. Your BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) is a number that determines how much alcohol is in your system. Keeping your BAC in check translates to making the most of your night, especially during a season that’s full of so many reasons to celebrate.
Are you someone who likes to plan ahead? Well, IARD’s (International Alliance for Responsible Drinking) new BAC calculator, called BACPlus, can be used before you even take that first sip. BACPlus forecasts your BAC by estimating the changing blood alcohol levels from your first drink until the alcohol is completely eliminated from your body. It also factors in your sex, weight, drinking time frame, and quantity of drinks ingested. It’s easy to use and provides you with a game plan to make good decisions while celebrating. http://www.iard.org/bacplus/
