10 of the world’s most expensive beers

Usually it’s fine wines and Champagnes which hit the headlines for their high cost, but as this list proves beer can also pack a pricey punch.

From beer produced according to an ancient recipe uncovered in an Egyptian Queen’s tomb, to a beer produced with Antarctic ice, there are all manner of unusual beers to have collectors racing for their wallets.

Judging from this list the main factors contributing to a costly brew is its exclusivity and unique selling points which will make a brew stand out from the crowd.

Take BrewDog’s End of History beer of which just 11 bottles were produced, or Sapporo’s unique Space Brew. As such many of these beers are now only available to the determined collector.

All beers are arranged irrespective of size, and instead based on single bottle value.

    Had 4 of them so far – but didn’t buy any of them – all but one Brew Dog compliments of a tour they did wearing Pengiun constumes. List is not accurate however as it includes vintage beers and there are several much more expensive, find a bottle of Allsops Arctic and you will probably find the most expensive, Bass Radcliff and Kings Ale are also readily findable and both wellover $100 each

    I couldn’t finish the article, made it to Space Beer and gave up… Its a real pain in the ass to have to click next after reading a paragraph of text and wait for the whole page to load again….. With such short commentary and a simple picture, you really should have put it all on one page. Seriously, what the hell! I would have loved to complete reading the article- I bet most of your readers did the same.

    Just tried a Cornish Smuggler, amazing beer but it set me back $450 for a 550ml bottle. well worth it though 🙂

    Of course they have to put them on 10 pages. That way they can say to their clients they have 10x more site viewings than they really do.
