Leave it to the Scots!
A brewery in Scotland is trying to get into Guinness with their new devilish creation — the world's strongest beer, clocking in at 65% alcohol!
It's called Brewmeister’s Armageddon. Apt!
“The beer has a viscous quality to it, due to the special freeze fermentation method we use to produce such a high alcoholic beer.”
What they're talking about is freezing the beer — at zero degrees — and removing the ice that forms leaving only the strong alcoholic beer, because alcohol doesn't ice at that point.
The other brewer says:
“The phrase ‘delivers a punch’ doesn’t quite cut it. ‘Delivers a supersonic charged explosion and conveys the taster to drunkville’ is probably more appropriate. It really is a powerful beer.”
The beer will be launched at the Inverness Beer Festival on November 3rd. It will sell for £5 per 35ml. It should be sipped like a good brandy, they say, which means don't beer bong it.
In 2010 Dutch brewer Koelschip put out its Start the Future beer, which had a 60% abv. Obviously this new contender's extra 5% will put that to shame!
We'd like to try it…we guess! Ha!
