Brewmeister’s owners, Lewis Shand and John McKenzie, spent nine months creating Snake Venome, the world’s strongest beer at 67.5%.
The new beer is so strong it comes with a warning label on the neck of the bottle.
Lewis Shand and John McKenzie said: “This is not a beer to be drunk like all the other ones, you’re not supposed to drink more than 35 ml in one sitting.
“It’s a great thing to buy someone for Christmas though, as it’s difficult to buy presents for guys and I’m sure they’ll appreciate the chance to say they’ve drunk the world’s strongest beer.”
A 275ml bottle of Snake Venom costs £50 ($80) – the equivalent of £6.25 per serving.
Lewis Shand, 27, claimed the beer was like nothing avid drinkers have ever tasted before, adding: “It tastes like a liquor rather than a beer and has a whole host of different flavors, ranging from bubblegum to caramel.”
Although the Scottish brewers have clinched the honor of world’s strongest beer for now, it’s likely their crown will be snatched away quite quickly – breweries have been battling for the title for years.
Brewdog fired the starting pistol with their Tactical Nuclear Penguin, which boasted 32% proof. Then a German brewery entered the race with Schorschbock at 40%. Brewdog nudged ahead with Sink The Bismarck a short time later, with an ABV of 41%.
More recently, beers such as ‘t Koelschip, Start The Future and Armageddon nudged the strength up to an eye-watering, mouth-stinging 65%.
