BrewDog has made only 500 bottles of Tactical Nuclear Penguin, The Daily Telegraph reports. It plans to sell half for 30 pounds (almost $50) a piece, with the rest going for 250 pounds ($410), including one share in the company.
The brewery in Fraserburgh near Aberdeen has a reputation for in-your-face beers. While Tactical Nuclear Penguin is 32 percent alcohol, BrewDog has already marketed Tokyo, an 18 percent alcohol beer, as well as a low-alcohol brew called Nanny State.
Tactical Nuclear Penguin hits the shelves during a public debate about how to curb binge drinking in Scotland.
"This beer is bold, irreverent and uncompromising, a beer with a soul and a purpose, a statement of intent," James Watt, BrewDog's managing director, said on the company's Web site. "Beer has a terrible reputation in Britain, it's ignorant to assume that a beer can't be enjoyed responsibly like a nice dram or a glass of fine wine."
