7 cent Brewery: Lexington

Lexington was made by 7 cent Brewery especially for the Alehouse Project‘s The Dark Side of Beer 3 festival. At this stage, this was the only batch, but the brewers are aiming to bottle it in the future.

This is claimed to be the strongest beer brewed in the Southern Hemisphere at 23.4% ABV and as a reflection of this, it was delivered to us in a wine glass in what we were told were 150ml portions.

Whoa. It’s genuinely good. I think dilemma is, and its fantastic and I really really like it, but the dilemma is that I could drink it really really quickly.

– Chris

That is really intense. I really like it though. I’m going to have to eat American BBQ for lunch and dinner just to compete with the flavours.

– Jeff

I could eat it with a knife and a fork. The thing that strikes me, apart from how thick this thing is is its not overly boozy … it’s what we refer to as a ‘dangerous beer’.

– Paul

This review also includes an interview with one of the brewers, Bowser.

The Lexington by 7 cent Brewery was featured in Season Two, Episode Four.


Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
