Expensive wine is no longer a surprise. But how about expensive beers?
How expensive beer can be? We have the answer here for you as we go through the top-fifteen countdown of the world’s most expensive beers.
Beer represents one of the oldest drinks known to man. Beer is usually not so expensive. And everyone could get some anytime they want without worrying about the bill. Maybe that’s why it is the third most consumed beverage after water and tea.
Beer dates back to the early Neolithic or 9500 BC, when cereal was first farmed. It was recorded in the written history of ancient Iraq and ancient Egypt.
Since then, people have come up with ideas in making better quality beers. And here we are today, centuries later, with our fifteen most expensive beers in the world. Check them out!
15. Crown Ambassador Reserve ($0.12 per ml)
That is not champagne you are looking at. But the Crown Ambassador Reserve beer is indeed bottled in a champagne bottle. It is not just for the sake of exclusivity, it also has something to do with its production.
Unlike most beers which are sold and consumed right after production, this Reserve beer was first aged in French oak for one year before it hit the market.
In addition to that, there were only 8,000 bottles were made in four iterations since 2008. Thus, it should come as no surprise that one 750-ml bottle of this Crown Ambassador Reserve is sold for $90. It makes it worth $0.12 per ml.
All I can say is that the Australian brewer really knows how to turn celebration-beverage around. By the way, has anybody done a shoey with this beer?
