What is the highest ABV lager beer?

Answered by Willian Lymon

Well, let me start by saying that I love beer. I’ve tried so many different kinds, from light lagers to hoppy IPAs, and everything in between. But when it comes to the highest ABV lager beer, there is one that stands out above the rest.

That beer is Snake Venom. Now, I have to admit, I haven’t actually tried this beer myself, but I’ve heard so much about it that I can’t help but be intrigued. Snake Venom is officially recognized as the world’s strongest beer, boasting an incredible ABV of 67.5%.

Just think about that for a moment. Most beers typically range from 4-8% ABV, with some stronger ones pushing up to 10 or 12%. But 67.5%? That’s a whole different level. It’s like the Arnold Schwarzenegger of beers, flexing its muscles and showing off its strength.

Now, I should note that Snake Venom isn’t your typical lager. It’s actually classified as a barley wine, which is a style of beer known for its high alcohol content and rich, malty flavors. And let me tell you, at 67.5% ABV, you can definitely expect some intense flavors and a whole lot of alcohol warmth.

But how does Snake Venom achieve such a high ABV? Well, it’s made using a process called freeze distillation, where the beer is frozen and the ice crystals that form are removed, leaving behind a more concentrated liquid with a higher alcohol content. This process is repeated several times to reach the desired ABV.

Of course, with great power comes great responsibility, and Snake Venom is no exception. This beer is not meant to be chugged or taken lightly. It’s best enjoyed in small quantities, sipped and savored like a fine whisky or brandy. And I can only imagine the incredible buzz it must provide.

Now, I have to admit that such a high ABV beer may not be for everyone. It’s definitely not a beer you’ll find at your local neighborhood pub. But for those beer enthusiasts who are looking for something truly unique and challenging, Snake Venom may be just the thing.

So, if you’re ever feeling adventurous and want to push the boundaries of what beer can be, give Snake Venom a try. Just be sure to approach it with caution and respect, because at 67.5% ABV, this beer is not to be taken lightly.
