The World`s Strongest Beer, coming in at 65% ABV


The title of the world’s strongest beer belongs to Scotland thanks to the folks at Brewmeister who came up with the Armageddon, which has an incredible 65% abv.

According to the brewery’s website, the beer is made of crystal malt, wheat, flaked oats and Scottish spring water. It’s so strong because it is freeze-fermented, which entails cooling the beer to freezing temperatures. As many alcohol aficionados know, water, but not alcohol, freezes. So when the ice is removed, the world’s strongest beer is left behind.

What does it taste like? Not to bad apparently. According to its makers, who suggest it be consumed “like a fine whisky”, The Armageddon is slightly sweet with lots of yeast.

The company warns: “Be careful though, smelling it is probably enough to put you over the limit!”
