Slightly Strong Beer

Brewmeister have today released the world’s
strongest beer named Snake Venom at a
whopping 67.5%. The new product beats their
own record beer Armageddon at 65% which
was released last year.

The beer contains special ingredients to achieve
such a high volume of alcohol including smoked
peat malt and two types of yeast: beer yeast and
champagne yeast.

Unlike normal beers Snake Venom is freeze
distilled, a process whereby the fermented beer
is frozen and ice is removed to increase the
concentration of beer.

Lewis Shand of Brewmeister said “Unlike
Armageddon, Snake Venom is not designed to
mask the taste of the alcohol. The alcohol is
very strong but the beer still tastes like a beer
rather than a spirit. It’s hoppy, malty and
very pleasant”.

Snake Venom is so strong that Brewmeister has
put a warning label on the neck of the bottle
warning drinkers to beware.

The beer is currently sold online for £50.
