pounds 40 A BIT DEAR FOR A BEER; Brewery's rare birthday stout.

Byline: By Alexander Lawrie

SCOTLAND'S newest microbrewery are releasing a limited edition stout set to be one of the most expensive beers in the world.

Released to celebrate BrewDog brewery's first birthday, Paradox has been matured for 12 months in a 1968 Bow more whisky barrel and will cost pounds 40 for a 330ml bottle.

And although only 200 bottles of the expensive brew are available, half have already been pre-ordered by beer enthusiasts from around the world.

The microbrewery in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, was launched in 2007 by lifelong friends James Watt and Martin Dickie.

James, 25, said: "This beer totally rocks. It is unique and a world first on many levels.

"I can't wait to raise a glass of this special batch of Paradox to toast Brew Dog's first birthday.

"We've had a great first year and to be producing beers of this quality in such a short time is exactly where we want to be."

Brew Dog have been producing the whisky cask-aged stout Paradox since launching in 2007.

It took gold at this year's Beer World Cup and also won a Scotland Food & Drink Excellence award.

Martin said: "Paradox represents everything that we love about brewing and everything that Brew Dog stand for.

"It's an innovative, uncompromising beer and will hopefully change a few people's perceptions."
