Tactical Nuclear Penguin beer. 64 proof.

Not quite at the level of tequila, but you can see it from there.

Tactical Nuclear Penguin beats the previous world record of 31 per cent which was held by German beer Schorschbraer. It was placed in the Guinness Book of World Records yesterday after being tested by experts at Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University.

The beer began as a 10 per cent imperial stout then was aged for 16 months in two different whisky casks.

It was then stored in a freezer at a chilly -20�C for three weeks to reach its massive alcohol level.

Almost fifty bucks a bottle (if that price was in British pounds: 45 if it was in Euros), so I think that the folks whining about this impressive bit of brewmastery should give it a rest. Doing this sort of thing without actual distilling going on is an accomplishment.

Via AoSHQ, I think.
