New Beer Is Stronger Than Vodka At 67.5% ABV, brewers claim it's the strongest in the world By Ruth Brown, Newser Staff Posted Oct 26, 2013 5:04 PM CDT 13 comments Comments Snake Venom beer sounds like it lives up to its name. (Facebook) (Newser) – Forget knocking back a few cold ones—any more than one of these brews and you'd be out cold. A Scottish brewery has released a new beer it claims is the "world's strongest," the Daily Record reports, and at a whopping 67.5% ABV, it probably is. For some perspective, the average vodka or whiskey is about 40% ABV, explains FoodBeast. Brewmeister Brewery spent nine months working on its Snake Venom brew, in an attempt to top its previous effort, Armageddon—which was only a measly 65% ABV, the Record reports. It's lucky you get so much bang for your buck, as one 275ml bottle costs about $80.
