Tactical Nuclear Penguin

I was privileged the other day to try some of this remarkable beer. It’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin by BrewDog and is an amazing 32% ABV. How do they do this?

They achieve this high alcohol content by freezing the beer and removing the water that freezes and draining off the liquid which is richer in alcohol (which freezes at a much lower temperature). It is also matured so it tastes quite mellow with hints of charcoal and chocolate.

It is £35 per 330ml bottle but to be honest, it’s a sipping beer and I wouldn’t want to drink more than one at a time.


Update: the great Dick Puddlecote has a post showing a new one by BrewDog: The End of History, made by BrewDog of Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, is 55% and £500 a bottle
