Beer as an alcoholic drink

A news article in Insing.com today reported that beer is now officially an alcoholic drink in Russia. They actually have to legislate it and sign a bill for it.

This article pricked my interest because recently, my office has been accumulating a lot of beer and some of my colleagues seem to be beer lovers. Of course, a can of beer or two won't get you drunk that easily, but honestly speaking, I wonder what took the Russian so long to acknowledge that beer is alcoholic despite the fact that it has alcoholic content? Perhaps their definition of alcoholic content is something like vodka?
