Scottish brewery BrewDog is set to launch a beer of ‘nuclear’ proportions.
The beer, named Tactical Nuclear Penguin, weighs in at a whopping 32% alcohol content. BrewDog have stated the drink should be enjoyed in small measures and responsibly and presumably at £35 a bottle, slowly 😉
The beer beats the last winner of the World’s Strongest Beer, Schorschbraer, which weighed in at 31%. After releasing a beer called Tokyo that was 18%, BrewDog were called irresponsible and subsequently released a low alcohol beer, Nanny State.
BrewDog have stated on their blog that they will be producing 500 330ml bottles of Tactical Nuclear Penguin. 250 of which will be available at £35 a bottle. The other 250 will be at £250 a bottle complete with a share in the company.
I am a big fan of BrewDog beers and a bottle or nine two of Punk IPA often frequents my shopping basket after a hard week at work. BrewDog beers always have great working on the side of the bottles, I like the humour that comes with a bottle, it really adds to the experience. Here is what the Nuclear Penguin bottle says:
“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.“
The first batch of limited edition bottles has already sold out, but you can get on the list for the second lot here: http://www.brewdog.com/product.php?id=46. Also, that doesn’t stop you trying any of the other beers they brew…Trashy Blonde is also great.
Mmmmm beeeeeeer 😛
