I gravitate towards the high ABV% in IPAs. I had one with 14% ABV. I was halfway through my second glass before I realized I was drunk. It was called Molotov. I bought a huge 64 oz Jug of it. 16 oz is the equivalent of well over 3 shots of say gin or vodka.
The strongest beer brand in current production is Eisbock from Germany, which has 14% ethanol by volume
Dunno how much alcohol it has, but it was powerful stuff.
2 snifters of it and I was woozy.
Um, your image got zhe Deutschezot.
FWIW, the list above shows a Dogfish beer at 15% and a Tactical Nuclear beer at 32%. No mention of flaver tho...
The Trappist monks are known to brew some high ABV beers. The challenge is in nuturing a yeast strain that can survive in the alcohol. 10-11% is the max you can expect to ferment at home. Anything higher than 12-13% ABV is fortified with some type of distilled alcohol.
Ah yes, I see how that works.
I am not much of a beer drinker but....what is with the trend of citrusy beers? Was at a firefighter dinner the other night and they had beer from a local brewery. Was so full of citrus I could taste it long after I drank it.
How Beer Created Civilization
beer was “safer to drink than water, because the fermentation process killed pathogenic microorganisms.”
