We were out last night meeting for the first time and drinking with a famous blogger and her entourage, so this post is dedicated t o wonderful new friends:
According to Scottish firm BrewDog, [the beer] is the “strongest, most expensive and most shocking beer in the world.” Just 12 bottles were made and the company has already sold out. They will be shipped out to buyers in the United States, Canada, Italy, Denmark, Scotland and England next week.
The dead animals which were used to create the beers’ unusual appearance were four squirrels, seven weasels and a hare. All were roadkill, James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog, told msnbc.com.
Watt said the beer should be treated with care when drinking. — msnbc.com
No squirrels or weasels were killed for our entertainment: mostly we drank Yuengling. While I see the appeal of a beer with 55% alcohol, I don’t see the added value of drinking it from an animal corpse. Oh. I know, I’ve slurped my share of beaver beverage, a/k/a poontang (I’m partial to the orange variety heh heh heh), but hey. There are subtle shades of flavor to savor in this complicated world.
That noted, for a $765 beer served from a stuffed squirrel, I expect some complimentary nuts. And I don’t mean psychotics praising my good looks and fancy attire….which, if they did, would PROVE they’re nuts.
Okay, that’s it.
