Ten Of The World's Most Expensive Beers Of The Day

Fuckers had better be good, that's all I'm saying. From Mental Floss.


Price: $275/330ml
ABV : 57.5%

Released last October, Schorschbock 57 claims to be the strongest beer in the world. According to Master brewer Georg Tscheuschner, a higher proof beer would violate Germany’s 500-year-old Beer Purity Law. Schorschbräu only made 36 bottles, and each carries a price tag of €200. Tasters say the 115 proof bock is smoky and nutty, with hints of raisins and, obviously, alcohol. The folks at gave it a paltry 20/100.


Price: $800-$1815/500ml
ABV: 10%

Not made from animals, this pale ale is made for animals. Concocted by Nail Brewing in Perth, Australia, 100% of profits go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. (That’s right, the Whale Wars people.) The Sea Shepherds landed a helicopter on an Antarctic iceberg, dug up some ice, melted it in Tasmania, and flew it to Perth for brewing. Only 30 bottles were made, and the first sold for $800 at auction.


Price : $110/six-pack
ABV : 5.5%

In 2006, Japanese and Russian scientists tested how well barley could grow in space. They rocketed barley seeds to the International Space Station and planted them aboard the Zvezda Service Module. After spending five months in orbit, the fourth-generation of barley was brought back to earth, where Japanese brewer Sapporo fermented it into the world’s first space beer. A six-pack costs $110—not bad, considering it was imported from the cosmos.

  1. At $275, that shit better be delicious. But, at 57.5% ABV, one sip and your tongue will be numb.

  2. I don't like beer, so if you're spending $800 on something, I better be wearing it somewhere on my body.

  3. To me, all beers taste like cold pee. I wouldn't spend $1 on a Corona if I had to save myself from dying of thirst.

  4. Beer saved the world. Amber won a bottle of this stuff made with glacier water that goes for 200-300 a bottle. It was supposed to be collectors stuff, but she popped the top off and drank that stuff right down. Said it was pretty smooth.

  5. Not a beer drinker, but I love the name Antarctic Nail Ale.
