The Strongest Beer Ever Made Was More Potent Than Whiskey

The world's strongest beer ever made was made in 2013 by a Scottish company called Brewmeister. The beer that set the record is called Snake Venom. With an alcohol by volume (ABV), Snake Venom is stronger than more vodkas and whiskeys by a large margin. Compared to other beers, the ABV of Snake Venom isn't even close-the average beer has an ABV of about 4.5%, and Snake Venom measured 67.5% ABV. Even the average ABV for hard liquor doesn't quite stack up: liquor average is about 37% ABV. Just one bottle of Snake Venom beer has the alcohol equivalent of 15 shots of hard liquor.
