The Mystery of Beer 70% by 'T Koelschip, Netherlands is now in stock. At £60.00 a bottle it is expensive and won't be to everyone's taste. Is it still beer? Yes, it is beer, the alcohol is removed when frozen and then extra alcohol is added back in before returning to a liquid. It also tastes like a very hoppy beer with an abundance of alcohol, of course. The ingredients include hops from the brewery's own hop range "Garden of 't Cool Ship", barley, malt and a special yeast.
They can't go on forever increasing the alcohol. According to Nijboer at 'T Koelschip "it's terribly difficult to brew a beer of 80% that will probably be about the maximum. Because beer should also still be drinking and it should still taste like beer."
We are the only place in the UK with the beer in stock to try - why not come down and try 25ml of the beer for £8 a shot in the pub.
We also stock Start the Future 60% from the same brewery at £50 a bottle or £7 a shot.
We'll try to update everyone with anything that's exciting or new. Give us some feedback!
