Methuselah of beer on sale in London

One of just six, six-litre bottles of beer worth £800 has gone on sale in London.

Savour’s Everything in Moderation Methuselah has been produced with the intention of raising people’s perceptions of beer by taking it “to the next level”, according to its makers. One of the super-sized bottles has gone on sale at Sourced Market in St Pancras with a hefty £800 price tag, closed with a Champagne-style cork.

Carrying the equivalent of eight wine bottles, the beer took 18 months to develop and was brewed using 100% floor malted barley, hops and three yeast strains.

Made using the same method as Champagne, the brew is described as being “rich and smooth with hints of caramel and honey on the palate”, with an “intense finish and subtle spices on the nose.”

Ben O’Brien, founder of Sourced Market said: “We’re really lucky to be the host of this extraordinary brew. In terms of taste and how to consume, this beer will take British beer lovers’ experience to the next level. It’s a mighty beer, and one lucky Briton will soon have the honour of sipping on it with his friends.”
