​World's Strongest Beer Is 67.5 Percent And Only Drunk One Shot At A Time

You may have thought that nothing could ever possibly beat a pint, but it turns out there's a beer that might just top your usual tipple of choice - delivering a hefty hit of booze as the strongest beer in the world.

With an ABV (Alcohol By Volume) content of 67.5 percent, Snake Venom is a fortified beer made by Brewmeister, a beer brand from Scotland's Keith Brewery Ltd.

The brewers came up with the product back in 2013, and since then it has become one of the brand's most sought-after beers.

The amber-style ale is strengthened so much that the result is something that tastes a little more like a spirit, with the alcoholic content to match.

Most lagers like Tennent's are four percent, while wine tends to teeter around 10-13.5 percent and spirits like gin, tequila and vodka are around 40 percent.

Snake Venom, however, is more than 15 times stronger than most other beers, with a staggering 67.5 percent ABV.

In fact, it's so strong, that you're only supposed to enjoy it in 'small doses', with a recommended measure of 35ml, which is a little more than a single shot.


Each 330ml bottle comes with a letter of authentication and explanation, and customers are only allowed to purchase a maximum of two bottles at one time - both measures to help beer lovers ensure they're drinking responsibly.

According to its listing on Drink Supermarket, the site Brewmeister uses to sell the beverage, the beer has a 'sweet, nutty aroma, a fruity flavour and fiery, intense finish'.

It also lacks carbonation due to its high ABV, meaning the beer has a 'smooth taste'.


The website says: "This beer is not for the faint-hearted, it is recommended to enjoy in small doses of 35ml measures.

"We are not responsible for the risks you may take and don't encourage you to be the hard(wo)man, hence you can only purchase a maximum of 2 bottles per order!"

Being so strong, the beer doesn't come cheap, with each 330ml bottle normally setting you back £49.99 - although currently it's on offer via Drink Supermarket for just £39.99.

Mind you, it sounds like you'll be getting a good bang for your buck, especially as you may find it hard to rattle your way through it too quickly.


Give it a go, if you dare.
