Weihenstephan, the world’s oldest brewery, and specialist US brewer Samuel Adams have launched Infinium, a “Champagne-like” beer with a light colour and an abv of 10.5%, in the UK.

The two companies claim that the beer is the first of its kind to obtain this level of abv while conforming to the guidelines of the German purity laws.

Infinium will roll-out globally at some point in 2011.
