Mass-produced beer is typically aged for only a week or two after its fermentation and has an alcohol content of 4%–6% ABV. Other kinds of beer may be fermented and aged for several months. Wines: Wine involves a longer (complete) fermentation process and a long aging process (months or years) that results in an alcohol content of 9%–16% ABV. Sparkling wine can be made by adding a small amount of sugar before bottling, which causes a secondary fermentation to occur in the bottle.
