  1.  Crown Ambassador Reserve Lager, $90 per bottle, $32 per oz, 10% ABV – This beer is concocted at a brewery in Australia. It was first brewed in 2008, aged in French oak barrels for 12 months and packaged in a champagne-like bottle. There are only 8,000 of these bottles put out each year, which would catch the brewery around $720,000 on just this one beer.

  1. Carlsberg Jacobsen Vintage, $400 per pack, $32 per oz, 10% ABV – This was a limited edition beer created by the well known Carlsberg brewery. The barleywine was aged in Swedish and French oak barrels for 6 months. There were only 600 of these brewed annually from 2008-2010 and are mainly sold in upscale restaurants in Copenhagen. Though there are only a few bottles of this beer, they have an expiration date of 2059 so there is no rush to drink these down.

  1. Westvleteren Brewery, Trappist Westvleteren 12, $625 per pack, $40 per oz, 10% ABV – If you buy this beer directly from the brewery it would only run you about $50 for a case of 24 beers. That would mean it wouldn’t even be close to being on this list, but that is extremely difficult considering that it’s a small batch brew. This highly rated quadrupel ale has gone for as high as $625 for a 6 pack in online auctions.

  1. BrewDog the End of History, $765 per bottle, $69 per oz, 55% ABV – This beer has the most interesting bottle and the highest abv of any beer on the list. The Scottish brewery has bottled this beer in the taxidermied carcass of some roadkill. Only 12 bottles of this beer were brewed and sold. This strong beer is freeze distilled multiple times which is part of how they were able to get the insane 110 proof.

  1. Nail Brewing Antarctic Nail Ale, $1815 per bottle, $108 per oz, 10% ABV – This is by far the most expensive beer in the world, and for good reason. This beer was made for charity purposes, the profits go to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for protection of endangered animals. This beer is also unique because it was brewed using ice from an Antarctic iceberg that was melted in Tasmania and flown to Perth, where it was used to brew the world’s most expensive beer.
