Brewery Creates 'World's Strongest Beer'
What's better than beer? A brew strong enough to knock you on your ass, that's what. BrewDog, a brewery in the U.K., claims to have created the world's strongest beer. The drink, called "Tactical Nuclear Penguin" weighs in at an astounding 32 percent proof.
Of the 500 330ml bottles released, 250 will be available for £35 with a further 250 available for £250 – the latter will include a share in the BrewDog company as part of its ‘Equity for Punks’ campaign which is aiming to raise £2.3m to build a new eco-friendly, carbon-neutral brewery in Aberdeen, Scotland.
The company's blog states the mission of Tactical Nuclear Penguin as:
This beer is bold, irreverent and uncompromising. A beer with a soul and a purpose. A statement of intent. A modern day rebellion for the craft beer proletariat in our struggle to over throw the faceless bourgeoisie oppression of corporate, soulless beer.
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 whiskey, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost."
Tactical Nuclear Penguin beer comes packed not in an elaborate box or case, but a brown paper bag with a hand-drawn penguin on it. You can buy yours at BrewDog.
