Potent, High-Alcohol Beer Headed to U.S.

Beware the wicked brew, beer drinkers. According to this National Post article, a highly alcoholic Scottish beer will soon be available in the United States. It's called "Tactical Nuclear Penguin" and has an alcohol concentration of 32%. That 8 times the alcohol concentration of a typical glass of beer, which is just 4% alcohol. The new brew will initially be sold in California and New York and will be available at Whole Foods, among other locations. As explained in the article, surprisingly, Tactical Nuclear Penguin, although initially reigning supreme as the strongest beer, has since been replaced by others:
It had a brief reign as the world's strongest beer, until a German company released Schrosch Bock, with a terrifying 40% concentration. Of course, BrewDog couldn't let this affront to Scottish pride stand, and quickly released Sink the Bismarck!, an even-more-leg-wobbling 41%.
These new classes of high-alcohol beers are just one more reminder to pay attention to what you're drinking and how much. This nifty website is a good start and explains the basics, including how much alcohol can be found in different types of drinks and provides helpful definitions of common terms. The bottom line: drink carefully and responsibly, and when you've had too much, don't drive. That way, the roads will be safer, you'll be safer, and you won't have to hire a DUI attorney.
