    World's strongest beer - guaranteed to dent your wallet if not your liver

    * Beer 55 per cent alcohol
    * Bottles cost $855 each
    * Presented in stuffed animal

    THE world's strongest beer can be yours for a mere £500 ($855) a bottle.

    The blond Belgian ale, named The End of History, is an astonishing 55 per
    cent alcohol by volume (ABV) and is presented in a case made from stuffed
    animals, including stoats and squirrels.

    Made by BrewDog, based in Scotland, the beer is infused with fresh juniper
    berries and nettles from the Scottish Highlands and was developed using an
    extreme freezing technique.

    Hundreds of pints of beer were used during the process, which was repeated
    dozens of times to produce just enough for a 330 milliliter bottle - hence
    the record breaking cost.

    James Watt, the company's co-founder, said: "This is the beer to end all
    beers."


    BrewDog drew criticism last year over the launch of a 32 per cent beer,
    which was later trumped by a German brewery that produced a 40 per cent
    strength liquor -- BrewDog then created Sink the Bismark, at 41 per cent.

    Mr Watt said The End of History was made to offer beer drinkers more
    choice.

    “We want to show people there is an alternative to monolithic corporate
    beers, introduce them to a completely new approach to beer and elevate the
    status of beer in our culture."

    He said the first two bottles were sold to a beer fan in Denmark.

    Hope they didn't waste the meat from the animals that enclose the brew.


    I'm pretty happy with the brews at my local guy. Cheaper, too.

    I s'pose it'd be for people who'd want to just try different things/beers,
    rather than for people who want to drink 75 bottles to show how 'good' they
    are. You'd best stick to the generics.
