It will take more than a few bucks to buy this bottle of brew.Carlsberg ASA officials said the brewery's new Vintage No. 1 beer is probably the world's best and most expensive.

The Danish brewer is charging about $400 for a single bottle of less than a pint. Brewmaster Jens Eiken said only 600 bottles of the beer will be made and most will be sold through three of Copenhagen's most exclusive restaurants. He said more than 50 have already been purchased.

The brewmaster said the beer, which weighs in at about 10.5 percent alcohol, is stored in Swedish French oak casks in a special place about 50 feet below Carlsberg's old brewery.

Consumers won't be returning the empties for a deposit. Each bottle has a hand-stenciled label by a well-known artist. The empties are said to be worth about $100 each.
