Scotland's BrewDog kicks it up another notch for the last time

Last year at 32% BrewDog's Tactical Nuclear Penguin got (and gave) more than a little buzz.
It became the strongest beer in the world.
Then in February- a few weeks after Schorschbrau brewed a bock at 40% ab, the Scottish punks came back with "Sink the Bismark," a
Quadruple IPA.



And now today-I'm alerted that BrewDog has sold out of - only took them 12 bottles to do so- "The End of History," a  55% Blonde Ale.

They went for 500 pounds ($765 US dollars) per bottle and were sold inside dead stoats, squirrels and a hare.

Brew Dog says this "beer is the last high abv beer we are going to brew, the end point of our research into how far the can push the boundaries of extreme brewing, the end of beer."
But-this is not to mean they won't continue to brew beer- just not trying to get to 66%.

They said they wanted to push the boundary and upset conventional wisdom.



Here's the video they uploaded two days ago.

  1. suz, do you have any idea how this beer is made? i thought that brewing yeast would not continue to ferment past like 20% or so, and that is where distilling usually picked up. just curious, jonny :)

  2. If the Germans come back with a 56% beer I guarantee the Brew Dog fools will go for 57. Care to bet on that?
