We've previously mentioned the fine work of the Scottish brewery BrewDog, which sells the world's strongest beer at 32% alcohol content. The German brewery Schorschbrau responded by releasing Schorschbock, which is 40% alcohol.
This challenge lit the patriotic fires beneath the people at BrewDog, who created a beer named "Sink the Bismark!" for the expressed purpose of taking down their German rival. It is 41% alcohol, and the name refers to enormous German battleship sunk in 1941 by the British Royal Navy.
