This Scottish Brew Lays Waste to Your Senses

Tactical Nuclear Penguin Beer


15 times stronger than some domestic brews (we’re looking at you Bud Select 55), Tactical Nuclear Penguin and its brew-ther Sink the Bismark IPA* set the world records for the strongest beers on earth at a tolerance destroying 32% and 41% ABV, respectively. Martin and James, the lads at Scotland’s BrewDog Brewery, fed up with the watered-down beers, set about finding a proper alternative. BrewDog’s unique process that lends superlative alcohol content to their beers involves freezing their brew at a local ice cream factory in order to remove water and increase the ABV rating (alcohol by volume). Clearly, a beer of this stature isn’t appropriate for chugging, but in hopes of preventing foolishness, the bottle bears the warning below. We’ve also embedded a video about BrewDog after the jump.

“This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. It is exactly the same manner you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.
