I received my 120th beer at my favorite local Mexican Food restaurant. My friend (and the owner) enjoyed my story about a different beer every day and he provided me with quite a unique beer for my 120th: the Schorschbraeu “16% ABV Schorsch Weizen.”
This beer is classified as the strongest Wheat Beer in the world following the Germany Purity Law. This means there are no adjuncts in this beer — it has only the 4 ingredients — hops, malt, yeast, and water.
They also have another beer with 40% ABV!! Ha ha! This brewery is only a couple of hours from here — I’ve already called and asked for a tour of the brewery. I should be heading over that way in the next couple of weeks. Wait for a follow-on post.
This beer (in my mind) is comparable to the Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA … it is also a sweet tasting beer and it leaves that lingering alcohol (warm) finish in the back of the mouth. It was actually a quite pleasant beer to drink. Give it a try if you can get one!
