An 18.2% beer made by a controversial Scottish brewery should not be be sold by bars, clubs and shops across the UK, a watchdog has ruled. The Portman Group said there had been complaints that a message on Fraserburgh-based BrewDog's Tokyo labels encouraged excessive drinking.  It is issuing a retailer alert bulletin and wants the marketing altered. The message says people must, from time to time, have excess, and adds: "This beer is for those times." BrewDog was previously branded irresponsible for Tokyo by Alcohol Focus Scotland.  It then followed it up with a low alcohol beer called Nanny State. BrewDog then made headlines last week after it launched an even stronger beer at 32% called Tactical Nuclear Penguin.
