Arrogant Bastard gets my vote. Great tasting, American made. What else do you need?

Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. A measly 21% ABV.

Ice type beers are usually your higher alcohol content per volume stuff. Bud Ice and Molsen Ice are two that I usually drink. I prefer the Molsen, but it's harder to find down south.

Sam Adams Utopias is like 24% by vol. It's the strongest beer ever produced, and drinks more like a cognac that beer. Good luck getting your mitts on it. It's a special edition thing and runs $100+ for a 24oz bottle, though the bottle is really cool.

I don't get it...

Drink Guinness, be happy.
Need more alcohol, drink Knob Creek bourbon.

Just want to get drunk, drink vodka.

But wtf is with just getting drunk? Drunk is bad, either drink responsibly cuz it tastes good, or consume a different beverage, because you're setting yourself up for some serious problems by lusting after alcohol for a "high".

Sam Adams $100+ for a 24oz bottle, you gots be out yo mind!

8.1% isn't good enough for you? I guess your only options are barleywines and Russian Imperial Stouts.

Rochefort 10 is 11.3%.

It's the greatest beer ever - if you can find it.

Don't just buy the hype, BUY THE BEER!


This beer is some seriously good shit... I picked up a "six pack" in Brussels a couple weeks ago. It was the 8% blue cap. It really is the best beer I've had to date. Dark, but very smooth.. I mean incredibly good. I wanted to bring home some of the others, but didn't have room in my bag. Next time.

I grew up in Canada and really like the beer from up there. It's actually far cheaper to buy it here in the U.S. because they don't tax it so much.

Molsen XXX is strong and one of my favorites.

Big +1. I was going to say the exact same thing. Around Christmas time there's also one that comes out called "Lump of Coal". It's a super tasty beer with bigtime alcohol content.

You guys do realized that anything with as much alchohol as some of these can hardly be called beer. Hell, even a barly wine isn't over 12% or so as the yeast will die off from the alchohol just like it does with anything else.

Those 24-28% monsters have to be fortified after fermentation.

Belgian ales are cool...and Haywards 5000 is pretty nice as well. Not as strong as some of the Belgian brews, but very smooth.

I live just outside of Harrisburg so I say Troeg's Troegenator! It's around 10%. Lancaster Brewery Hop Hog is also great, at about 7.3% Dogfishhead Immort Ale is also around 10%, but it is $60 a case. Troegenator is half that, and tastier.

When I was in college, the strongest beer we could get (easily) was EKU 28.

BevMo says they have it.
EKU 28

Very dark.

Over 9% alcohol by volume. Plus the elephants are really cute.

I don't understand the desire for high alcohol beers. I drink beer for the tase (really). The highest alcohol content beer that I've ever had was Molsen XXX. It's 7.5%. The alcohol overwhelms the beer flavor even at that ratio. I'l stick with 5% or less.

They've bred strains of yeast designed to survive high alcohol environments. It's harder, and you have to heavily oxygenate the environment for it, and it's designed mainly for industrial alcohol production, but it is out there. Google "turbo yeast".
