%ABV Smackdown: Scotland vs. Germany

Sink the Bismarck! from BrewDog on Vimeo.

Now this is getting silly. Quick on the heels of an announcement by German brewery Schorschbräu that its new Schorschbock 40%, a ridiculously strong Eisbock, had displaced BrewDog's Tactical Nuclear Penguin as the world's strongest beer, an angry BrewDog has launched the next salvo in the escalating beer arms race. According to a write-up by the BBC, the brewery's new Sink the Bismarck beer, clearly aimed at its German rival, weighs in at 41% ABV!! (Wait, isn't that Scotch? It might as well be. Still, BrewDog's calling it an IPA.) What does this mean for Tactical Nuclear Penguin? Listen hard, and you might hear a bugler playing taps. BrewDog's James Watts declared, via Twitter, "Tactical Nuclear Penguin is dead."
