Top 5 Most Expensive Beers in the World
While many people enjoy drinking light and less expensive beer, there are still some most expensive beers out there. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed and probably oldest alcoholic beverage; it is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea. It is produced by the brewing and fermentation of sugars, mainly derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat. Here are the list of Top 5 Most Expensive Beers in the World
5. Tutankhamun Ale – $52 per bottle
This most expensive beers was developed by archaeologists from Cambridge University’s Egypt Exploration, and Scottish and Newcastle Breweries. They uncovered an ancient kitchen in the Sun Temple of Queen Nefertiti, a relation by marriage of King Tut. They examined the dregs in the ancient brewing jars, deciphered hieroglyphics, and excavated at least 10 brewing rooms. They only produced enough ingredients to make 1,000 bottles of “Tutankhamun Ale”.
4. Samuel Adams Utopias – $100 per bottle
Samuel Adams is an American brand of beer brewed by the Boston Beer Company and its associated contract brewers. The company was founded in 1984 by Jim Koch, Harry M. Rubin, and Lorenzo Lamadrid in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Vintage No. 1 may be four times as expensive as Samuel Adams/Boston Beer Company’s Utopias, the former most expensive beers, but Utopias still holds a Guinness World Record for being the strongest beer at 50 proof.
3. Carlsberg Vintage 3 – $348 per bottle
Under the leadership of Jacobsen Brewery’s brewmaster, Morten Ibsen, six Carlsberg brewers from Norway, France, Great Britain and Denmark dedicated themselves to developing and brewing Carlsberg’s ambitious beer trilogy, Vintage 3. The Carlsberg Group as one of the most expensive beers, a brewing company founded in 1847 and named after founder J. C. Jacobsen’s son Carl, is best known for their light-bodied lager, Carlsberg Pilsner (also known as Carlsberg Beer or Carlsberg Hof).
2. Brewdog’s “The End of History” – $765 per bottle
The name of this most expensive beers derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, this is to beer what democracy is to history. Only eleven bottles of this expensive beer, named after a book by philosopher Francis Fukuyama, were produced. The blond Belgian ale, infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and fresh juniper berries, is 55 percent alcohol and will be BrewDog’s final high ABV beer. The bottles, however, are the beer’s most striking aspect–each one is encased in a squirrel or weasel stuffed by a gifted taxidermist.
1. Antarctic Nail Ale – $800
The unique beer which was brewed with ice brought back from the Antarctica from the Sea Shepherds last campaign. The Sea Shepherd will soon leave on their seventh campaign to stop Japanese killing whales in the Antarctic sanctuary. All proceeds from Antarctic Nail Ale go to the Sea Shepherd.
