The Frankonian Empire strikes back

The news has been trickling out over the past few days that Schorschbräu has, once again, taken back the record for the World's Strongest Beer, with Schorschbock 43. Apparently it's a limited release of about 100 bottles,which will be available soon, and they are still experimenting with pushing the limit to a theoretical 50%.

They make a gentle dig at BrewDog with the Prussian-style helmet, so beloved of Bismarck, silencing the radioactive Pingu, not to mention the line "'cause Frankonian Men don't dress like girls". Oh dear :D

That's all, folks!

It's a pretty crap drawing though. Surly they could have had someone who actually knows how to use a pencil do it.

Small brewery with a limited advertising budget? Probably done by a friend of the family.

"'cause Frankonian Men don't dress like girls".

Great line, those poor scots (or is it all celts who wore kilts :-(

Only the guys who do kind of reenactments wear similar stuff in Ireland, as far as I know :) Knew a few guys who were members of "Celtic clans" in the 90s. Was quite odd at times, especially when they'd start fighting between themselves while wearing such garb in Charlies Rock Bar. Ah, those were the days...

Any idea what the theoretical upper ABV limit for beer (or distilled beer, or whatever the technical term is) might be? Just wondering how far this could end up going... :)

No idea, Darren. I got a mail that said he was still experimenting, but thought they could get to 50%. I'm sure it's pretty hard to freeze the stuff at that level! :D
