Schorschbräu Schorschbock 57% finis coronat opus

With BrewDog saying they were finished with super-strength beer Schorschbräu must have thought this 57% abv beer would be the clincher for them, the translation of the name is “The End Crowns the Work”, a hint that Schorschbräu was also finished with super-strength brewing.

    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.

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

    Brewmeister list their strongest beer as Snake Venom at 67.5%. It claims it is a fortified beer with a smooth taste and lack of carbonation due to it’s high ABV.

  4. Russ Perry Jr. says:

    I was getting the impression that ~58% might be close to the theoretical limit to ice distilling beer… When Brewmeister says “fortified”, that makes me think that they’ve ADDED to the ABV with (conventionally) distilled spirit. Does anyone know for sure?
