Beer is a beloved treasure around the globe, in countries like the Czech Republic (where they consume more beer per capita than any other country in the world) or Germany, this drink is a vital part of a person's daily life. In the US, 1.2 million college students drink alcohol on an average day, and I'm sure most of that alcohol is beer.

What would be your limit when it comes to prices? How much money would you be willing to pay for a special pint? Here's a list of the most expensive beers in the world. 

1. Samuel Adams’ Utopias

This American strong ale created by the Boston-based brewery Samuel Adams, comes in a very special 750ml bottle that costs between $150 and $600, depending on the edition. It contains 28% alcohol and they describe it as "flavorful and slightly fruity, with a subtle sweetness and a deep rich malty smoothness, yet still light on the palate."

2. Schorschbräu Schorschbock 57 

This beer comes from Germany, and on their official website they say it qualifies as the strongest beer in the world. Smokey, nutty and with a 57% alcohol, It costs $.83 per ml, so the 330ml bottle would be $275. If you can find one of the 36 bottles that were produced, do you dare to try it?

3. BrewDog Sink the Bismark 

Sink The Bismarck is a special craft IPA with 41% alcohol that mixes malt, sweet honey, hop oils, and hop bitterness. It is currently out of stock on the official website and on most websites I checked, but you can hope they produce another batch and have it for a price that goes from around $50 to $200.

This brewery has a story worth reading. Picture it, two friends were bored of drinking industrially brewed lagers and decided to start their own small business. Today, they have more than 500 hundred employees and 44 bars around the world. 

4. Crown Ambassador

Feeling fancy? Crown Ambassador may look like a champagne bottle, but this lager is one exquisite beer, made from the finest ingredients with the addition of handpicked green Galaxy hops. When it's available (they produce a limited amount per batch to keep the price up), the price can vary from $70 to $800. It's ABV is 9.2%. 

5. Jacobsen Vintage No. 1

An exclusive Danish beer sold only in Denmark, you could find it in some of the most refined restaurants in Copenhagen. It contains 10.5% alcohol and they've produced only 600, for now. Tasting this brown-colored caramelized jewel could cost around $400 for the 375ml bottle. This beer must be worth the trip to Scandinavia!  

6. Cantillon Classic Gueuze

This beer has been labeled as "The Champagne of Belgium." The 1978 version can be acquired upon request on some auction websites, and its price is between $400 and $600. A newer edition of Cantillon Classic Geuze can be found online and you can buy it for something between 10 and 30 bucks.

7. Vieille Bon Secours Ale

This is said to be the most expensive beer in the world, being sold in a specific London restaurant called Belgo Bierdrome. The bottle comes in at around $750, and $60 for the pint. Only 12 bottles were ever produced, so don't expect to see one of these anytime soon!

8. Sapporo Space Barley 

This limited edition beer from a Japanese brand was made with space-grown barley that was part of an experiment back in 2006. They've held two online lotteries for beer enthusiasts to acquire the special release. At a cost of $110 for a six-pack, the taste must have been out of this world!

9. Brewdog The End of History 

As incredible as it may seem, this brewery has used actual squirrels as packaging (all road kill), and they sure charged for it! A 330ml bottle of The End of History cost was $765. Just 12 were made and they are sold out for now, but they had to make it onto the list. 

10. Antarctic Nail Ale

This beer was made with water from Antarctica. Only 30 numbered bottles were released, and the money went to the Sea Shepherd Australia, a non-profit conservation organization that fights to protect ecosystem and species in the ocean. The funny fact is that the first bottle was sold at an auction for $800, the second one was sold for $1850. Giddy up, good causes are worth it.

11. Tutankhamun Ale

A British beer that costs $75 per bottle/500ml. The first one ever sold was bought for $7,686! It was produced by a Scottish brewmaster using ancient beer residue found by a Cambridge archaeologist in 1990. They are no longer in production, so that price may rise for the existing bottles.

The most expensive beers in the world sure made me thirsty, wanna go grab a Bud Light?
