10 Highest Alcohol Content Beers

When you think of that alcoholic drink that could leave you waking up in the backstreets of Benidorm after popping out to the local spoons for a few cold ones, hard spirits like tequila and vodka pop into our heads first.

However, drinking enough beer can usually have a similar (perhaps less extreme) affect.

But not even the hard liquor can compare to the Brewmeister’s Snake Venom beer. Weighing in with an incredible 67.5% alcohol by volume (AVB).

Widely known as the most alcoholic beer in the world, and you can pick one up for just £50 a bottle. Although there is an unmistakable taste of alcohol upon drinking, those brave enough to try the tipple say it still retains the classic beer taste.

Despite notoriously having a lower alcohol content than other drinks, there are still some popular beers that pack a punch while holding onto that refreshing beer-taste.

The list below compiles popular brand beers with higher than average ABVs. Whether you are looking to enhance the power your beer hits you, want to save money per night out, or are simply curious – this is the place for you.

Popular brands

Tennants

Tennants

AVB – 8%

Style – Pale Lager

Country of Origin – Scotland

From the official Tennants website:

Every single pint of Tennent’s Lager is made with pride in Glasgow by people who know a thing or two about beer. In fact, at Wellpark, we’ve been brewing Tennent’s since 1885, slowly crafting a lager that’s rooted in community and tradition. Over the years, our brewery has become part of the Glasgow landscape, but our lager is famous far beyond its home city – for its crisp taste and refreshingly clean finish. Tennent’s Lager continues to be Scotland’s best-selling lager.

La Chouffe

La Chouffe

AVB – 8%

Style – Blond

Country of Origin – Belgium

From Achouffe:

“The gnomes of Fairyland are particularly fond of this golden beer. LA CHOUFFE, with its slight hoppy taste, combining notes of fresh coriander and fruity tones, is the drink which gives them their zest for life. At least, that’s what these imps say when they are thirsty. Their secret used to be jealously guarded from one generation to the next until the day they shared the recipe with humans to seal their friendship. Of all the legends from the wonderful region of the Belgian Ardennes, the tale of LA CHOUFFE is the one which most merits re-telling. “
