Managing director James Watt said a limited supply of Tactical Nuclear Penguin would be sold for £30 each.
He said: “This beer is about pushing the boundaries, it is about taking innovation in beer to a whole new level.”
Mr Watt added that a beer such as Tactical Nuclear Penguin should be drunk in “spirit sized measures”.
A warning on the label states: “This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.”
Want! Predictably, the wowsers aren’t too pleased about it:
However Jack Law, of Alcohol Focus Scotland, described it was a “cynical marketing ploy” and said: “We want to know why a brewer would produce a beer almost as strong as whisky.”
