The battle for the worldâ€™s strongest beer continues to rage on, as a Dutch brewer just stole the title from BrewDog. Last week, BrewDog released 7 bottles of a beer called â€œThe End of History,â€ which for the week, was the Worldâ€™s Strongest Beer. But Nijboerâ€™s Almere-based brewery, â€˜t Koelschip (The Refrigerated Ship), has answered with its â€œStart the Futureâ€ beer.
The â€œStart the Futureâ€ beer is 60 percent alcohol by volume (120 proof) which beats out BrewDogâ€™s â€œThe End of Historyâ€ ale, which was 55% ABV.
The beer sells in a 1/3 liter bottle for about $45 each.
The Vancouver Sun reports that the Refrigerated Ship brewery previously held the title of the worldâ€™s strongest beer with a beer called Oblix, which was 45% ABV. Oblix beat out BrewDogâ€™s â€œSink the Bismarkâ€ beer, but BrewDog fired back with â€œThe End of Hstoryâ€ last week.
â€œIt has become a little competition,â€ Nijboer said. â€œYou should see it as a joke.â€
Nijboerâ€™s â€œStart the Futureâ€ beer is currently the worldâ€™s strongest beer, but I wouldnâ€™t be surprised if BrewDog has something, well, brewing.
