Last week, your boyfriends at UrbanDaddy alerted us to the existence of the new title holder for world's strongest beer. BrewDog's Sink the Bismarck weighs in at 41% ABV to best the previous record holder, the German-brewed Schorschbock, by just 1%. The laborious brewing process involves kettle, dry, and freeze-hopping the quadruple IPA before it's aged in whiskey casks and frozen in an ice cream factory to eliminate a large chunk of the water that was bringing down that ABV percentage.

Given all that effort, it's understandable that James Watt of BrewDog only cranked out a limited run of 100 bottles, but lucky for us in San Francisco, the Scottish brewer will be making an appearance at notable beer bar Toronado in the Lower Haight tonight for a tasting. Although, with a pint being roughly equivalent to eight martinis, I doubt he'll be too heavy on the pours. [Tornado via UD]
