If you’re in Sochi this week and you spot a bright red beer Canadian maple leaf adorned beer fridge promising you free beer, you’re only getting said free beer if you’ve got a Canadian passport or if you make nice with a Canadian who will scan their passport for you. Canada, you win all the gold medals.
The crown of the world’s strongest beer now rests on the flammable head of Brewmeister’s Snake Venom. It’s also about $80 a bottle, so it’s not like you’re going to try and get totally shitfaced on it unless you’re one of those people that already spends thousands on bottles of wine.
This unique beer is made with a plethora of malts including peat smoked malt, acid malt and chocolate malt. It is fermented using two types of yeast - ale yeast and champagne yeast in order to deliver a higher alcohol content. It is then painstakingly freeze concentrated. Tasting notes: Dark brown in colour with a nose of alcohol, whisky and hops.
