    SteveI, have you tried this yet?

    German brews world's strongest beer

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A German brewer has concocted what he says is the world's strongest beer, a potent drink with an alcohol content of 25.4 percent that is served in a shot glass.

    "Everyone who has tried it is enthusiastic. It tastes like a quirky mixture of beer and sherry," said Bavarian brewer Harald Schneider.

    Schneider, who lives in southern Germany where beer is a tradition, said his beer fermented for 12 weeks for an alcohol content twice that of Germany's other strongest beers.

    "People will only be able to drink two or three glasses, otherwise they'll drop like flies," he said.

    Schneider expects the holders of the world's strongest beer, the Boston Beer Company, to put up a fight.

    "I'm pretty sure the Americans have something up their sleeve."

      Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

        He can drink 12 stones in a buck and a half.

        I bet he can drink 30.

          Until Keystone comes up w/ a beer like this, I'm afraid we'll never know :(

            They could market this as less filling and overall light too since you wouldn't have to drink much to get your buzz on!

              Sounds like a challenge. Call the liquor store and find out when they're getting it in.

                  I'm pretty sure I object to the use of the word "German" in the thread title.
                  If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.
