World’s Strongest Beer Title Changes Hands Again

After Samuel Adams’ Utopias and the 31% Schorschbräu, the folks at BrewDog beat them both last fall when they came out with Tactical Nuclear Penguin, at 32%. Then Schorschbräu answered back with a 40% version. In February, BrewDog launched Sink the Bismark, again over-taking their German rivals with the 41% hop bomb.


Schorschbräu has now created a 43% Version, and is again — at least for now — the world’s strongest beer. Gizmag has a nice recap of the whole story.


Germany Retakes The Title

It only seems like yesterday that BrewDog’s 32% a.b.v. Tactical Nuclear Penguin captured the title of world’s strongest beer, besting German brewer Schorschbrau’s 31% beer. But now the German brewery has retaken the title with a whopping 40% monster of a beer. Schorschbrau describes the beer as follows:

The currently Strongest Beer in the World: 40% Alcohol

Available in 0.33 liter ceramic bottles, personally signed and hand-numbered by the Braumeister himself. Each bottle is sealed with wax by hand and comes in a wooden case with a transparent window on one side.
