After a decade-long race to brew the world’s strongest beer, BrewDog has teamed up with German brewery Schorschbräu to create its strongest beer ever

The new brew, Strength in Numbers, is an eisbock that clocks in at a whooping 57.8% abv. 

The process to make eisbocks involves cooling a bock-style beer for the water to freeze (eis is the German for ice); the removal of the ice results in a highly concentrated beer.

Strength in Numbers is made with a blend of BrewDog's Death or Glory and a Belgian golden ale that has spent 10 years in whisky casks.
