You’ll be goin’ down after one of these!

The flamboyantly competitive Scottish brewery BrewDog has released Sink the Bismarck!, a “quadruple IPA” that they say is the most alcoholic in the world at 41%. BrewDog had previously earned similar attention last year with their then-record-setting 32% ABV beer, Tactical Nuclear Penguin, but rival brewery Schorschbrau just weeks ago (briefly) reclaimed the beer potency title with their Schorschbock, at 40% ABV, prompting Brewdog’s latest counterattack.

Sink the Bismarck!’s 41% ABV renders it more alcoholic than whiskey or vodka. BrewDog has preempted the expected accusations of irresponsibility from British alcohol awareness groups, and explains that the beer should be consumed responsibly, “in spirit-sized measures.”

Most women are far better at detecting the nuances of beer than men

While a new brewery is all set to open in Australia’s Warnervale on the Central Coast, it is believed that more women would be hired as

professional beer tasters, for they apparently make better tasters than men.
With the opening of the new Bluetongue Brewery, almost 100 jobs will be created, out of which 10 and 15 will be of full-time beer tasters, and that too without any experience.
The 120 million dollars brewery will open in late 2010, and is expected to produce enough bottles daily to stretch 109km.
And to make sure that every beer tastes right, owners are expecting that the majority of the jobs would go to women because they make better beer tasters.
“Women typically are better able to detach a smell from the object,” the Courier Mail quoted Bluetongue’s head brewer Tim Williams as saying.
Williams said that women could smell a liquid in a cup and say “strawberry” whereas men “have to see the strawberry”.
Unlike wine, beer tasters must swallow.
“A lot of beer’s bitter characters are detected at the back of the throat,” Mr said Williams.

A new brewery is set to open in Australia’s Warnervale on the Central Coast, but the plans are to use women primarily as the professional beer tasters, because studies have shown that women make better tasters than men.

Powdered Beer! What a brilliant idea! Or not!
David Ewalt: A lot of weird and wonderful stuff comes out of Japan. Kaiju. Crazygame shows.The tanuki. They make good beer, too — I’ll put a mass-market lager from Asahi or Kirin up against Budweiser or Miller any day. But I wasn’t quite so impressed when I recently tried a Japanese powdered beer provided by my friend Ryan — sure, it was weird and fun, but as an actual beverage… not so great. (Pics)
