A new beer from Perth-based microbrewery Nail Brewing has now become the world’s most expensive beer. The Antarctic Nail Ale beer was lately sold for $800 a bottle at an auction in Fremantle to benefit the anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd. Only 30 bottles of the limited edition beer were brewed at the Nail Brewing headquarters at Edith Cowan University in Perth. The special beer was brewed with ice brought back from the Sea Shepherds’ most recent trip to the Antarctic. Nail Brewing Australia’s brewer John Stallwood said…

It is great to sell the most expensive bottle of beer in the world but it is all about a good cause. It is 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.

He also added that since over 90% of beer is water, the Antarctic Nail Ale could possibly be the world’s oldest and purest beer. The previous record for world’s most expensive beer was with the Scottish brewery BrewDogs, for their $765 high alcohol stuffed animals beer bottle. Via: AFN/Nail Brewing
