In life, there is best beer, and then there is everything else. Boys will argue and try to convince their lady friends otherwise but, of course, it’s all lies. Being able to drink beer is among the best things about adult life, and when you get to enjoy a cold one surrounded by friends and family is simply blissful. Whether the goal is to unwind after a long day at work or to get lit up like a Christmas tree at a party, best beer is there for you.
Best Beer is refreshing and can be drank for an extended period of time; whiskey can be sipped over a few hours but the experience isn’t the same and there is no “thirst-quenching” of any kind. But what if you could enjoy the best of both worlds? Strong beer is brewed in a variety of ways, but at the end of any of these processes, what results is a beverage ready and able to make anyone talk funny.
10 strongest best beers list!
what beer has the highest alcohol content?
10. Baladin: Esprit De Noel – 40 percentage of alcohol in beer
The Baladin brewery is Musso’s passion and much like the De Struisse Brouwers, he has come up with dozens of different types of beer. It is defently a high alcohol content beer! The Baladin website recommends Esprit De Noel for “passionate drinkers who like taste and elegance”. Although a bottle would be rather inexpensive, costing around $35.00 USD, you won’t be able to get it at your local liquor commission.
9. Brewdog: Sink The Bismarck – 41%
Sink The Bismarck was the original “strongest beer in the world”. It’s an IPA style beer but “this ain’t your daddy’s IPA”, this one might just strip paint. Sink The Bismarck has four times the hops of a normal IPA, along with being frozen throughout the brewing process which ups the ante on the alcohol content.
8. Schorschbrau: Schorschbock 43 – 43 percentage of alcohol in beer
Schorschbock 43 was this German brewery’s creation that not only had they retaken the label of “strongest beer in the world”, but that “Franconian men don’t dress like girls”, adding a distinct edge of cultural insensitivity to the fight. At roughly $150 per bottle, thank goodness it won’t take much to catch a buzz.
7. Brouwerij t’ Koelschip: Obilix – 45%
Dutch brewers Koelschip tried their hand at a strongest beer in the world, and succeeded. According to the brewers’ website, the inspiration for Obilix was in response to BewDog and Schorschbrau one-upping each other. At around $25.00 USD, it is by no means a bargain.
6. BrewDog: End of History – 55%
BrewDog struck back in late 2010, with End of History. There were only twelve of these ever produced and each bottle was inside a stuffed squirrel. Each beer sold for a bit over $750 USD.
5. Schorschbrau: Schorschbock 57 – 57%
Schorschbrau, in their quest to make the strongest beer the globe has seen, failed to recognize one geographical concern, which has to do with Germany’s beer purity laws. Schorschbrau’s 57% Schorschbock is as high as said laws will allow the brewery to go; only 36 bottles were made and they were sold for $275 USD.
4. Brouwerij t’ Koelschip: Start The Future – 60%
Koelschip took the title back with their Start the Future brew, which was released in September 2010. Start the Future is sold in some pubs in the vicinity of the brewery, and in bottles at the brewery itself. Start the Future is priced at around $50 USD.
3. Brewmeister: Armageddon – 65%
Brewmeister decided to step into the ring of strength. Armageddon was released in 2012, and was recognized as the strongest beer in the world, but not for long. It is rather expensive, being sold for just under $100 USD.
2. Brewmeister: Snake Venom beer– 67.5%
Snake Venom beer was unveiled in 2013, and it is available through their website for about $80 USD. If you have a pile of money lying around and want to get loaded, Snake Venom and Armageddon might be the way to go. It contains alcohol with snake in it.
1. Brouwerij t’ Koelschip: Mystery of Beer – 70%
Koelschip is the winner of this little contest. Mystery (Mistery) of Beer is 70 alcohol percentage in beer, and at around $50 USD per bottle, it actually isn’t a bad deal. Many people can’t handle it though, as it is approaching the strength of Bacardi 151. But is this beer, or not?
