|Strongest British Brew
A brewery which claims to make the
strongest beer in Britain is under
renewed attack for creating a drink
called Speedball — the name of the
notorious heroin-cocaine cocktail.
Health campaigners have previously
criticised the company, BrewDog, after
it launched Tokyo, a stout with an
alcohol content of 12%, twice that of

Speedball, by comparison, is less

BrewDog, said the beer has been
designed for connoisseurs and will not

alcohol only plays a minimal role and no
one was shown drinking beer. In
response to criticism the name of the
game has been changed to Pong Toss.
