BrewDog VS Schorsch - Strength In Numbers
Alc Vol. 57.8%
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Over a decade ago we entered an international ABV race against German brewery Schorschbräu to brew the world’s strongest beer. The back and forth that ensued became the stuff of beer legend.
The time has come to pen another chapter in this epic saga. This time, it’s one of camaraderie as we join forces with Schorschbräu for the ultimate collaboration.
Strength in Numbers is a 57.8% beer that reaches is colossal ABV through the traditional eisbock method, which means freezing the beer and removing chunks of ice (water) so that you’re left with the concentrated high ABV liquid. The beer also features a blend of BrewDog’s own Death or Glory, an ice distilled Belgian golden ale that’s been sitting in whisky casks for 10 years.
The result is unlike anything you've had before or are likely to have again.

The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
