A Scottish brewery has one upped itself to create the world's strongest beer. Brewmeister based in Keith, Scotland has released a new beer called Snake Venom which clocks in at a staggering 67.5% ABV according to the brewer's website. Snake Venom beat out Brewmeister's Armageddon beer, which previously held the title of world's strongest beer at 65% ABV when it was released in 2012. The brewers tell the Daily Record: "We thought if it was too strong, people wouldn't like it. But the problem we found is that people said we shouldn't have tried to cover up the intensity ... so this time we thought we'd go full out." There is a warning label on the beer advising drinkers not to consume more than 35ml in one go. A bottle costs £50 (roughly $80).

The subject of the world's strongest beer started something of a turf war back in 2010. Scottish brewery and reality TV subjects BrewDog released a 55% ABV beer called The End of History that also happened to come in a taxidermied squirrel bottle. Then, a Dutch brewery called 't Koelschip released a 60% ABV beer called Start the Future.
