    Dutch Brewer Creates Strongest Beer in the World


    Jan Nijboer's 120 Proof "Start the Future"

    A Dutch brewer, with a penchant for competition, has laid claim to creating the world's strongest brew: a beer that is some 60 percent alcohol by volume.

    "You don't drink it like beer, but like a cocktail -- in a nice whisky or cognac glass," brewer Jan Nijboer told Dutch news agency ANP.

    Nijboer's Almere-based brewery, 't Koelschip (The Refrigerated Ship), sells the new beer, which is 120 proof and dubbed "Start the Future," in a one-third liter bottle for $45 each.

    Nijboer told ANP he developed the new brew to keep up with Scottish outfits that were also pushing the boundaries of beer's alcohol content.

    His previous record-holder, a beer called Oblix that was 90 proof (45 percent alcohol by volume), was eclipsed by a Scottish beer that reached 55 percent.

    That beer, dubbed "The End of History," was announced last week by a small brewery called BrewDog. Only 12 bottles were made, each housed inside a stuffed dead animal and sold starting at $780 each.


    BrewDog's 110 Proof "The End of History"

    (This blond Belgian ale, "The End of History," is infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and fresh juniper berries. Only 12 bottles have been made and each comes with its own certificate and is presented in a stuffed stoat or grey squirrel. The striking packaging was created by a very talented taxidermist. All the animals used were road kill. This release is a limited run of 11 bottles - 7 stoats and 4 grey squirrels. Each bottle comes with its own certificate of authenticity.)

    "It has become a little competition," Nijboer said. "You should see it as a joke."

    I'd like to know what yeast can survive to that high of an alchohol content. The highest available to order will only get to about 19%.

    This video right here sums up the high alcohol content of beer and what to expect if you were to drink it. Great beer reviewer, always watch his video's before I make a selection.

    Beers that get above 10-12% are refermented to increase the alchohol content.
