Ahh - I am right, the beers you list are made by fractional freezing, basically, rather than adding alcohol to the beer, water is removed, to increase the ABV,


So I don't count those as a natural brewing process.


However some new strains of yeast can now survive at higher levels,


From Wiki


Beer ranges from less than 3% alcohol by volume (abv) to around 14% abv, though this strength can be increased to around 20% by re-pitching with champagne yeast,[120] and to 55% abv by the freeze-distilling process.[121] The alcohol content of beer varies by local practice or beer style.[122] The pale lagers that most consumers are familiar with fall in the range of 4–6%, with a typical abv of 5%.[123] The customary strength of British ales is quite low, with many session beers being around 4% abv.[124] Some beers, such as table beer are of such low alcohol content (1%–4%) that they are served instead of soft drinks in some schools.[125]

Thousands of firearms remain potentially unaccounted for despite a police campaign for lifetime gun licence owners to renew or hand weapons in.
