Now You Can Be a Soldier in the ABV Wars

We've been covering the ongoing struggle to brew the world's strongest beer, but until now it's been a battle in a far away land that had little to do with the good people of DC. The instigator of the ABV arms race is Scotland's BrewDog, which insists on pairing its ridiculously high-alcohol creations (Tactical Nuclear […]

OMG! Yet Another Contender in the World’s-Strongest-Beer War: Start the Future

Prepare yourself. Are you sitting down? Not even a week after BrewDog announced a 55%-ABV beer called "The End of History," Dutch brewery ‘t Koelschip (translation: "The Refrigerated Ship" but in beer terms, a vessel where spontaneous fermentation occurs) has retaliated with a ridiculously huge is-it-really-beer of its own: "Start the Future." Clocking in at […]

BrewDog Declares “The End of History”

This is officially beyond silly, and we're not just talking about the video above, which features cross-species frolicking in the woods. Scotland's BrewDog has released yet another beer qualifying as "world's strongest," and this time they are declaring the act to be the death of beer. If their 32%-ABV Tactical Nuclear Penguin and 41%-ABV Sink […]

BrewDog Part 2: A Couple Punk Clowns

Yesterday we posted some background on BrewDog, the Scottish brewery that is pushing boundaries and palates in the U.K. and beyond. Today's second post in this week's series looks at the way James Watt and Martin Dickie, the men behind BrewDog, are converting the masses to their way of thinking and drinking. The terms punk […]

BrewDog Tactical Nuclear Penguin & Sink the Bismarck! at Max’s Tonight

We were on the fence about heading up to Baltimore for the James Watt event at Max's tonight, mainly because I (Tammy) haven't put much effort into finding a partner in crime (which can be difficult on a weeknight). But that was until we got wind that the BrewDog co-founder will be bringing two of […]

%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 […]

A New, New “World’s Strongest Beer”

Unless you have been traveling, you probably haven't yet had the chance to sip on BrewDog's Tactical Nuclear Penguin, which for a few proud months claimed the mantle of being the world's strongest beer. (See our November post inaugurating its brief reign here, as well this addendum by the Beerspotter). At 32% ABV, Tactical Nuclear […]

2009: The Year in Beer News #2

Today we bring you part two of our look at the biggest beer stories of 2009. Reviewing all of this news makes us look forward to the year ahead, so after four | nostalgic | blog | posts | we are saying enough. The Lagerheads are done looking back at 2009 and are ready to forge ahead with […]

The World’s Strongest Beer — and Why It’s Like Bud Ice

I'd like to offer one addendum to the Lagerheads' post on BrewDog Tactical Nuclear Penguin, the new strongest beer in the world. How do they get so much booze into this imperial stout, which weighs in at 32% abv? The same technique used by, um, some less savory beer products — e.g. Bud Ice. As […]

Beer Goes Nuclear

There is an arms race underway in the beer world, and a Scottish brewery has upped the ante. BrewDog, one of the newer and badder kids on the block, has gained a reputation for shocking beer drinkers with its strange concoctions. You may remember our post on Storm, the Scottish brewery's 8%-ABV Imperial IPA aged in […]
