retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The New York Post reports that “a 110 proof beer, the world’s strongest, was launched Thursday by a British firm selling the tipple for $762 a bottle. The blond Belgian ale, named The End of History, is an astonishing 55 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) and is presented in a case made from stuffed animals, including stoats and squirrels.

“Made by BrewDog, based in Scotland, the beer is infused with fresh juniper berries and nettles from the Scottish Highlands and was developed using an extreme freezing technique.”

Two bottles reportedly have been sold to a beer enthusiast in Denmark.
