Those cheeky punks at BrewDog are up to it again. This time, they’ve picked up the gauntlet thrown down by Schorschbrau who bumped BrewDog’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin off of the “world’s strongest beer” throne earlier this month with their Schorschbock. The only way they could have made this promo video funnier is if they had put Biz Markee in a penguin costume. Oh BrewDog youuu; you got what I neeeeed. Unfortunately, I’ll never get to taste it because the West Coast Mutineer Armory intercepts these kind of packages. The Villains!
The “Sink The Bismarck” edges out Schorschbock by 1% alcohol by volume, coming in at a whopping 41% ABV. That’s spirits strength for those of you keeping score at home. These over-the-top beers are using freeze distilling to come up with the high alcohol marks. Freeze distilling takes a beer that has already been brewed and squeezes the water out which concentrates the alcohol and flavor of the beer.
Sink The Bismarck is selling for about $60 for a 12 oz. bottle and will only be sold on the company’s website.
