World's Strongest Beer is 32% Alcohol

Scottish brewery BrewDog has released its newest beer, named Tactical Nuclear Penguin. At 32% alcohol content, it's the world's strongest beer:

A warning on the label states: "This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost."

However Jack Law, of Alcohol Focus Scotland, described it was a "cynical marketing ploy" and said: "We want to know why a brewer would produce a beer almost as strong as whisky."

The beer has been launched on the day alcohol was at the top of the political agenda with the unveiling of the Scottish government's Alcohol Bill including proposals for minimum pricing on drink.

beer-yeast dies (of its own waste product, alcohol)
when it hits around 11-13 %

So anything above has added alcohol or is brewed in a different way, so technically should not be called "beer" anymore...

but who cares, I want some!

I've gone as high as 20% with Dogfish Head's 120 Minute IPA and World Wide Stout. They're pretty tasty, although the IPA needs some time to age or else it's just too harsh.
