@magicdave - the gist of the article is that this new spirit is AWESOME. It's a mixture of alchemy & apothecary yaddayaddayadda...

From what I could gather, itís freeze distilled, 35% ipa. Iím not sure what the difference is between the new one and STB other than the alcohol. Anyone know?

Would it still be classed as rateable though if it is made in a similar fashion to stb or does brewers intent come into it?

Like many I have ignored the hype and got on with enjoying some very good beers! Except -not so much this year. Nothing from them has really rung my bell this year compared with some very decent brews last year. The IPA Deads were a pale shadow of the the previous 2 years. Also the prices are starting to wear me down. £18 for a pint of Abstrakt is outrageous but just about wearable. £8 for a pint of average wheat beer is beyond taking the piss.

It doesnít seem that long ago (Jan 2011) that a crowd of us met up for a Brewdog (cask) minifest at Spoons in Holloway. Hardcore IPA went down a treat with the locals at £2 (ish) a pint. I donít think that the Police were needed until quite late on that night.

Iíd like to think my Brewdog share(s) have risen in value in line with their draught beer prices

Had some Jack Hammer recently, which i was pretty impressed by.

Been to Newcastle, Edinburgh and Manchester bars - not bad, bit standardised and pricey, but then again, all those cities have a vibrant, if somewhat expensive, beer scene.....

If itís made in the same way as the other BrewDog high strength stuff then it qualifies regardless of what they say in the bullshit. If you are going to make distilled spirits you have to have a special license from HMRC and the regulations/requirements are a lot more stringent than for brewing. Perhaps BrewDog have such a license. Dunno.

Those keg prices are interesting. £164 for keg punk ..no wonder why it is expensive in bars. Thatís going to be £4+ easily.
