NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

There’s a new brew that claims to be the strongest beer in the world.

Snake Venom was created by Scottish-based Brewmeister.

It has a 67.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). Many hard liquors only have an ABV of 40-50 percent.

The brewer said the beer took nine months to develop and was brewed with smoked peat malt and two varieties of yeast, one beer and one Champagne.

Like other high-alcohol beers, brewers used a technique where they freeze it during the fermentation process – sometimes several times.

Snake Venom, comes with a yellow warning label and drinkers are cautioned that the brew is meant to be sipped, not chugged. It is being sold for about $80 for a 275 mL (about 12 oz.) bottle.

Snake Venom is the latest beer in which brewers try to outdo each other by creating stronger and stronger beers.

Scotland's Brewdog first produced Tactical Nuclear Penguin at 32 percent ABV. German-based Schorsbrau then followed with Schorschbock at 40 percent, followed by Brewdog releasing Sink the Bismarck at 41 percent.

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
