Worlds Strongest Beer

Man, will people get off their high horses?  This morning I read the following article.

First, the cool part…an upstart brewery in Scotland (Blue Dog) set the worlds record of Strongest Beer by brewing one they call “Tactical Nuclear Penguin Beer” (horrible name) at a whopping 32%.

Congrats to them.

Now the stupid part…..

Jack Law, chief executive of Alcohol Focus Scotland, said: "It is child-like attention-seeking by a company that should be more responsible.

"The fact that they have achieved a new world record is not admirable.

"It is a product with a lot of alcohol in it - that's all. To dress it up as anything else is cynical.

"It's as strong as whisky, so you have to ask whether this is actually a beer or a spirit - it's clearly a spirit."

Hey EINSTEIN, they only made 500 Bottles.  It’s a marketing ploy to get attention to their company.  I doubt little kids are going to run out and buy it.  Pull your panties out of your arse and go have a pint.

Also….”As strong as whisky”?  Ummmm…..I don't know what you are buying bub…but the last I checked, the majority of whiskey is bottled at 40 to 46%, so it’s not “As Strong”. 

It’s teetotalers like you, Jack, that are a dreg on society….not the brewers (nobody is FORCED to drink their beer), Distillers or the drinkers. 

You skew statistics to meet your needs and try and influence the free will of people though your “Educational” meetings and disinformation.

I could think of thousands of better uses for the £1,636,558 of income your organization raised last year vs the fear mongering and leeching that is currently  going on.

Ok, I will now climb off my soapbox and have a beer.  You will now be returned to your regularly scheduled program.
