London, July 23 (IANS) This beer will knock you out. A British firm has brewed the world’s strongest beer with a staggering 55 percent alcohol content.
The Belgian blonde ale has been named The End of History and one bottle would cost 500 pounds.

The previous record holder - Sink The Bismarck - lost out to this drink by a significant 14 percent.

The super-strength drink has 55 percent Alcohol by volume (ABV), which simply represents what portion of the total volume of liquid is alcohol. Beers rarely top five and a half percent ABV.

The special brew is made using an extreme freezing technique to squeeze out more water and make the beer stronger.

The brewers BrewDog will serve the ale in whisky sized glasses as it is so strong.

“This is the beer to end all beers,” The Sun quoted BrewDog MD James Watt as saying.

The ale, which is brewed in Fraserburgh, Scotland, has juniper berries and nettles from the Scottish highlands.

“We want to show people there is an alternative to monolithic corporate beers, introduce them to a completely new approach to beer and elevate the status of beer in our culture.

“We are on a mission to open as many people’s eyes as possible.”
