The Antarctic Nail Ale, tagged the “World’s Most Expensive Beer, which has been made at the Nail Brewing headquarters at Edith Cowan University in Perth, ” was sold for $800 a bottle, at an auction held to benefit the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The auction, held in Fremantle, featured addresses from Greens senator Rachel Siewert and Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettit, as well as Sea Shepherd Captain Paul Watson.
This has been made in limited quantity from Antarctic ice brought back from the society’s last anti-whaling campaign in the Southern Ocean. Every one knows 90% of beer is water. Thus, says Ecorazzi, the new beer could possibly be the world’s oldest and purest beer.
This Antarctic brew also overtakes Crown Ambassador Reserve, previously Australia’s most expensive beer at $90 a bottle. Previously, the record for world’s most expensive beer was held by Scottish brewery BrewDogs, for their $765 high-alcohol beer, a 12- bottle run of 55% ABV beer, served in a bottle wrapped in roadkill.
Apart from enjoying popularity as the world’s expensive beer, it also has the backing of a good cause to boast with. It’s also good that a beer about saving the whales is now most expensive beer in the world, rather than high alcohol beer sold in animal carcasses.
The company’s successful Nail Ale won acclamations in the 2009 and 2010 Australian International Beer Awards in the draught ale category.
