--These words by MIKE BRODY Fox25 news:A Scottish brewery is being called "irresponsible" after debuting a new beer that contains 18.2 percent alcohol. BBC News reports just one bottle of the powerful "Tokyo" contains six units of alcohol -- the same as three pints of normal-strength lager.
BrewDog , the makers of the potent beer, insist the ale will actually cure binge-drinking because it's so strong that heavy drinkers will down less of it, but Alcohol Focus Scotland says the brewers' claims are "deluded."
"This company is completely deluded if they think that an 18.2 percent abv (alcohol by volume) beer will help solve Scotland's alcohol problems," Alcohol Focus Scotland Chief Executive Jack Law said. "It is utterly irresponsible to bring out a beer which is so strong at a time when Scotland is facing unprecedented levels of alcohol-related health and social harm."
BrewDog has produced 3,000 limited edition bottles of Tokyo , which will only be available through its Web site or specialist retailers.
Earlier this year, drinks industry watchdog the Portman Group wanted another BrewDog beverage called Speedball withdrawn because it shared a name with an infamous drug cocktail which combines heroin and cocaine.
This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of speciality malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation we then dry-hop this killer stout with a bucketload of our favourite hops before carefully ageing the beer on French toasted oak chips.
It is all about moderation. Everything in moderation, including moderation itself. What logically follows is that you must, from time, have excess. This beer is for those times.
