World's strongest beer sold in Glasgow

Lads heading for a Glasgow stag weekend will be interested to learn that the World’s strongest beer is now available in the Scottish city.

Glasgow is the first city in the UK to offer the German beer, which measures a head-spinning 40 per cent.

However, drinkers will be urged to try this super brew responsibly with the pub restricting the brave to just one 25cl measure of the beer named Schorschbock.

Schorschbock is on offer at the independent WEST bar in Glasgow, which is run by Bavarian Petra Wetzel.

She said: "As a Franconian, I'm delighted to introduce Schorschbock, the world's strongest beer, to the UK to show my support for the tremendous work done by my fellow countrymen and brewers.

"The Schorschbock has a totally unique flavour that will appeal to any beer connoisseur and sits well alongside our own range of award winning premium quality lagers brewed right here in Glasgow.

"Due to its exceptional strength and rarity, we are restricting sales of Schorschbock to one measure per customer."

Scotland is no stranger to strong beers after an Aberdeenshire brewery hit the headlines last year with its controversial 32 per cent BrewDog.

The Stag Company urges everyone to drink responsible on their stag do.
