New record-holder for world’s most expensive beer

Over the summer, I posted about Scottish brewers who wrapped their “End of History” ale in animal carcasses and sold them for over $700

The priciest beer has now moved from Scotland to Australia, when last week a bottle of Antarctic Nail Ale sold for $800 at auction.  30 bottles were made by John Stallwood at Nail Brewing headquarters at Edith Cowan University in Perth. 

The bottle was sold at an auction benefiting the Sea Sheperd Conservation Society.  The Society seems to do good work.  Those of you who know me know how I feel about sharks.  I do find it odd, though, that this beer was brewed with Antarctic Ice brought back from the Sea Sheperd’s last anti-whaling campaign in the Southern Ocean.
