The world’s 10 strongest beers

Earlier this week Scottish brewers Brewmeister released the world’s strongest beer, but which beers has it beaten to that title?

Brewmeister Brewery co-founder Lewis Shand with a bottle of ArmageddonBrewmeister’s Armageddon beer has an incredible 65% abv, and will be launched at the Inverness Beer Festival on 3 November where it will sell for £5 a 35ml nip. The brewers recommend drinking it in small quantities, rather like a brandy.

Armageddon is the latest beer in a long-running battle to take the title of world’s strongest beer. Three years ago BrewDog kicked off the battle with their Tactical Nuclear Penguin, which was a 32% abv beer.

This started a tit-for-tat exchange with German brewers, Schorschbräu, and these two breweries created a number of beers, each with a stronger abv than the last.

Then in 2010 Dutch brewer Koelschip put out its “Start the Future” beer, which had a 60% abv. That stayed as the strongest beer until the boys from Aberdeen came along with Armageddon.

Take a look through this list at more of the world’s strongest beers.

    Hi there, is your beer naturally fermented or is it freeze distilled? We brewed a naturally fermented beer at 23% was in the Guinness book of records As far as we are aware there has not been a naturally brewed strong beer since…

    Would be interested in your methods and comments.

    Cheers Baz Parish

    It all has to be ice beer. You can’t distill it and call it beer. Malt liquor maybe?
