The dubious honor of a record-setting strong beer (using freeze-distillation, as have all other recent contenders to the "crown") swings back to Scotland and Brewmeister in Banchory, along the River Dee west of Aberdeen, with a 65% alcohol-by-volume beer, Armageddon. £40.00 ($65) a 330ml bottle, two week waiting period for order fulfillment. The name is an obvious play on BrewDog's The End of History (55%) and Dutch brewery 't Koelschip's "response" from 2010 called Start the Future at 60%.
The Deeside brewery also make a Deeside Pale Ale, a Lochnagar Spray, and a Blonde. All 4%.
