This month, it was announced that a very strong Scottish beer would be
making its way to the U.S. market. At least 400 bottled of Tactical Nuclear
Penguin are expected to be sold in New York and California in Whole Foods
stores. Unlike other beers, this imported brew has an alcohol percentage of 32%.
In November, the beer was launched by BrewDog in Scotland. Following its
release, many criticized the beverage because it contributed to Scotland's
"epidemic of alcoholism".
For awhile, Tactical Nuclear Penguin was in fact the world's strongest
beer, but Germany then released Schrosch Bock which has a 40% concentration.
Feeling the need to compete, BrewDog released Sink the Bismarck!, which
has a 41% concentration and can only be purchased directly through the company.
According to BrewDog, their beer gets its name from the brewing process.
The beer is put into containers and transported to the cold store of a
local ice cream factory where it is housed for 21 days in chilly temperatures.
As the beer got colder and colder, BrewDog Chief Engineer Steven Sutherland
decanted it until only ice was left in the containers. BrewDog says this
process not only creates more intense flavors, but also a higher alcohol
Remember, if you plan to buy a few bottles of Tactical Nuclear Penguin,
do not drink and drive.
Driving under the influence is a serious offense in the state of California that can result in tough
penalties. If you have been charged with DUI, do not hesitate to
