Top 10 drinks world records

6th February, 2013 by Andy Young

The world’s strongest beer

Armageddon beer

For many years Scottish brewers BrewDog were involved in a tit-for-tat exchange with German brewers Schorschbräu, trying to create the world’s strongest beer. Both of these brewers tried to out-do each other creating new and stronger beers.

BrewDog bowed out with a 55% abv brew, while Schorschbräu stopped at 57% abv. Recently the title of the world’s strongest beer went back to Scotland when Brewmeister came up with Armageddon, which has an incredible 65% abv.
