Antarctic Nail Ale
BE Nail Ale Bottle

A beer from an Australian microbrewery has the title for the world’s most expensive beer.

The limited edition beer, of which only thirty bottles were brewed, was created at the Nail Brewing headquarters at Edith Cowan University in Perth.

Antarctic Nail Ale was based on the company’s Nail Ale, though brewer John Stallwood says it is slightly higher in alcohol and bitterness. (Nail Ale = 4.7% and Antarctic Nail Ale is 5.2%).

The original Nail Ale is back-to-back Gold medal winner at the Australian International Beer Awards 2009 and 2010.

This unique beer is brewed from a chunk of melted Antarctic ice. The Sea Shepherds landed a helicopter on an Antarctic iceberg, dug up some ice, melted in Tasmania, and flew it to Perth for brewing.

The Antarctic water could possibly be the purest, oldest water ever brewed to make a beer. The first sold for USD 800 at an auction. But the second auction made even more people amazed: bottle number two was sold for USD1.850,00!

But this project is all about a good cause: 100% of profits go to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization, with the hard mission to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the worlds oceans.
