North East brewers Brew Dog announced their latest slightly strange beer today – The End of History – it’s 55% alcohol and the bottles are presented in a dead stoat or squirrel!
According to the BBC there’s a little controversy surrounding it (see link above) but Brew Dog have only this to say:
This 55% beer should be drank in small servings whilst exuding an endearing pseudo vigilance and reverence for Mr Stoat. This is to be enjoyed with a weather eye on the horizon for inflatable alcohol industry Nazis, judgemental washed up neo-prohibitionists or any grandiloquent, ostentatious foxes.
At £500 a bottle (there are only 11 of them anyway) I doubt I’ll ever be trying this, though I do quite like some of their beer and am looking forward to them opening their pub in Aberdeen later this year!
