I'd Drink A Case: New Scottish Beer Takes Cake For Highest Alcohol Content at 32%

November 27, 2009


Well folks, there's a new drunkest beer in town. And that beer is Tactical Nuclear Penguin by BrewDog Brewery in Scottland -- at 32% alcohol by volume content. I WANT IT INSIDE ME! Too bad it's gonna cost $49.50 a bottle. I'm sticking to isopropyl!

A warning on the label states: "This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost."

However Jack Law, of Alcohol Focus Scotland, described it was a "cynical marketing ploy" and said: "We want to know why a brewer would produce a beer almost as strong as whisky."

I don't know what kind of idiot test you have to pass to join Alcohol Focus Scotland, but for the sake of Jack Law, the answer is, "to get people drunk". Jesus, it's not rocket surgery.

Thanks to 2MechanicalArms, Kitteh and Ross, who once drank 240% alcohol and loved every sip of it.
