Beer Brewed From Antarctic Iceberg!

03-11-2010

Beer brewed with Antarctic ice to help save whales

Ice from an Antarctic iceberg has been used to brew thirty bottles of beer by Nail Brewing Australia. The beer is to be auctioned at a fundraiser for the Sea Shepherd with all money going to help save the whales.

The Sea Shepherd is presently in Fremantle. Earlier this year, they returned to Tasmania with ice from Antarctica to brew beer. With good Antarctic ice hard to get, only enough ice was used to produce 30 very unique beers.

The beer was brewed by Nail Brewing Australia, using Edith Cowan Universities (ECU) 50 litre pilot brewery. ECU run brewing courses and John Stallwood brews his award winning Nail's beers there.

Over 90% of beer is water, so the Antarctic Nail Ale could possibly be the world's oldest and purest beer. More likely it is the world's most unique beer.

Antarctic Nail Ale was based on Nail Ale though it is slightly higher in alcohol and bitterness.
