‘t Koelschip Start The Future (World’s Strongest Beer)

In case you don’t follow beer news that closely, BrewDog released a beer last month called The End of History. It weighed in at a hefty 55% ABV (for reference, that’s higher than the ABV of vodka) and $764. But your obscene expenditure did get you beer encased in a dead squirrel.

We sincerely hope you didn’t spend over $750 on that beer because ‘t Koelschip (It means The Refrigerated Ship) released their Start The Future beer a mere week later. It doesn’t come stuffed into a dead animal, but we’re not too upset because you can make your own dead squirrel. What you can’t make is the 60% ABV (that’s 5% higher if you’re already drinking) and $700 cheaper (roughly $46 US) Start The Future. Jan Nijboer (the brewer) stole the title of World’s Strongest Beer from BrewDog who originally stole it from him. It’s shaping up to be a regular battle of beer guts to see who can get beer to Everclear toxicity first.

Your move Brewdog, your move.
