I received a link from J2, of the KegWorks IT department, to this story on AOL News and I’m pretty pumped, I’ve got to say.
Seems our dear friends at BrewDog finally have the OK to send their second strongest beer ever, Tactical Nuclear Penguin, to the USA for us to enjoy. Weighing in at a whopping 32% ABV, this is one of the strongest brews on the market.
According to the article, Tactical Nuclear Penguin is frozen for over 3 weeks at an ice cream factory – this way, they’re able to remove water and up the alcohol concentration. Quite the process!
I love what the makers of BrewDog beers write on the labels, too. On the TNP is a warning that “This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. It is exactly the same manner you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.”
As I mentioned above, Tactical Nuclear Penguin is their second strongest beer. The strongest brew, which currently hold the title of highest ABV beer in the world, is Sink The Bismarck, an IPA that’s 41% alcohol. Wonder when we’ll be able to find that on shelves in the US?
