Beer it seems is getting a real splash of sophistication these days. Take for example a new brew produced by Storm Brewing in Vancouver, Canada. The craft brewery has produced a limited edition beer that sells for $1000 a bottle. Yes, a bottle.

The crew here at Chew Boom can’t be totally certain, but we’d venture to guess it’s one of the most expensive bottles of beer on the market.
Glacial Mammoth Extinction beer is aged in French oak barrels for two years before bottling, and touts an alcohol content of nearly 25%. The team behind this viscous 100% malt beverage says it resembles a Port more than beer.
It just doesn’t get any better than this. But it does.
The beer is bottled in hand blown glass artisan bottles that feature prehistoric mammoth ivory pendants complimented with 14K gold clasps.
Only 10 of these beautiful works of brewing are available, so if you want one, move quick.
Another one of these beauties has found a new home and only seven remain! We are closed tomorrow but back on Tuesday to resume fills and tasters of the Glacial Mammoth Extinction. Thank you for an amazing weekend! #craftbeer #bcbeer #yeastvan #uniquebeer #rarebeer #vancouverisawesome #vancitybuzz #604
We have sold two of our artisan gift bottles! The glass was hand blown by Brad Turner and the pendant was made by sculptor Richard Marcus out of 35,000 year old mammoth tusk ivory. Both of these artists are renowned for their craft and are within walking distance from the brewery. We have eight bottles remaining!
