A quantitative study of copper (Cu) content in 19 different beer brands produced in mainly European countries and consumed in Sweden were measured using atomic absorption spectrophotometer without sample digestion. Results showed that the Cu content in beers is below the permissible levels concentrations for potable drinking water recommended by World Health Organization. In addition, the studies indicated that there is no correlation between the amount of Cu content in beers and their respective hops Cu content.
