Brewery creates the world's strongest beer
A Scottish brewery claims to have created the world's strongest beer - a 65% alcohol drink called Armageddon.
And it is proving so popular that there is a two-week wait for delivery - despite the £40 price tag for a single 330ml bottle.
Created by Scottish firm Brewmeister, the beer is made from crystal malt, wheat and flaked oats and is freeze fermented to bring it to the required ABV.
A pint of the beer contains an alarming 37 units of alcohol - twice the recommended weekly intake for a man.
Brewmeister says the beer should be 'consumed like a fine whisky'.
A spokesman said: "Despite being 65%, the beer has a lot of flavour - malty, hoppy, slightly sweet and lots of yeast still in the beer.
"Be careful though, smelling it is probably enough to put you over the limit!"
Brewery founder Lewis Shand told Standard Media: "The phrase "delivers a punch" doesn't quite cut it - delivers a supersonic charged explosion is probably more appropriate."

Irony becomes you robert!
I meant to press like. I agree. Already a boozed up Briton
Interesting. I had some very strong stuff in Holland once. It was great.
Better just have a half then ?
What is the point of brewing this rocket fuel A couple of bottles and you will be out for the count. Give me a nice bitter beer that allows me to sink slowly into oblivion as the pints rack up. Bliss
I do not understand why some people need to feel they have to get drunk so quick on stuff that rots the stomach.
Yet somehow comment no.7 got one vote! Orange you really need to sort yourselves out!

Totally irresponsible, should be banned!!
Think the people on here need to get a grip at £40 a bottle people are hardly going to be necking it, I think its good these micro breweries are popping up and creating jobs and trade.
