World's Most Powerful Beer Bottled In Taxidermied Animals

image

Beer is a tasty treat for those old enough to enjoy it, unless perhaps it's encased in a dead squirrel.

Scottish brewing company BrewDog has come up with the most unique beer bottle type you'll ever see: a dead animal. Not only is its "End of History" beer the world's most powerful, but it also comes encased inside either a grey squirrel or a stoat (a small weasel). These aren't fake animals either; they're actual road kill.

End of History is described as a "blond Belgian ale" that has 55% alcohol content. Many beers run less than 5%, so this is quite a lot. Only 11 bottles are being made: 7 stoats priced at around $771 each and 4 grey squirrels priced at $1080. Snooze and you'll always lose, as all 11 bottles are already sold out.

BrewDog says End of History is "a perfect conceptual marriage between art, taxidermy and craft brewing. The bottles are at once beautiful and disturbing - they disrupt conventions and break taboos, just like the beer they hold within them." Every bottle comes with a certificate of authenticity. I seriously doubt that's necessary.

This is a pretty cool/extremely creepy and weird idea. End of History works well as a piece of art or an artifact to keep around, but I don't think I could take a sip of a beer when a dead animal is staring me in the face as I do it.

Well... this is the most fucked up thing I've read all day.

if there's 7 stoats and 4 squirrels then how is there 12 bottle's?

I- wha- ... huh?

I have no words.

-m

...

If you drink straight from the bottle, wouldn't you be kissing road kill?

I was wondering that too, then I realized, I probably sleep better at night not knowing.

Whoopsie...heh heh.

BrewDog....

Oh wait, I know those guys! They're insane. They made the strongest beer ever, Tactical Nuclear Penguin. Before this one, obviously.

I find this quite hilarious, mainly because I can imagine them coming up with it while drunk out of their minds.

I.. I'm not usually into this sick animal-trophy business, but I want one. Just to be able to pour myself a beer from a stoat.

Owwww finnaly some use for squirrels :<(snap I went there, take that squirrel lovers! I gues)

Also, this is just weird, who would buy that anyway?

I don't know whether to laugh my arse off, be vaguely disturbed or try to find a bottle for myself.

Actually...where can I get some of that?

Tom Goldman:
(a small weasel)

Apologies for the rampant nit-picking, but a Stoat is larger then a weasel (if I remember correctly).

I really wonder if that would taste any good, not that curiosity could ever justify such a stupid price tag.

I kind of fell sorry for the animals, using their bodies to encase beer. Feels kind of wrong, if not disrespectful.

Man can be really mess up sometimes.

Damn, why couldn't I have been informed of this sooner. Owning that would have been awesome.

That is very very disturbing. I can't ever see why you'd want to drink beer from inside a dead animal. It's just...wrong on sooo many levels.

Holy shit! 55% alcohol. I can't imagine it would still be carbonated. It'd probably look and taste more like whiskey than anything. Sam Adams has to step up their game. Their 26% beer just won't cut it anymore.

Now I'd buy that at a high price if I could.

Furburt:
Tactical Nuclear Penguin.

If it's named that, I have to try it.

OT: That's awesome.
I need to make some of these myself.

Only the Scottish. If they're not deep-frying it, then they're finding a way to make it closer to 100% pure drinkable alcohol. (Don't kill me...)

Still a bit of a problem there, sorry...

Anywho, this just seems completely mental. But also extremely awesome. 55% alcohol content? In a dead squirrel? It reminds me of the 'HISHE' Willy Wonka video, where he and the Oompa-Loompas think up the scary tunnel while completely wasted on chocolate (how chocolate can get you high is something that's better left unasked). Seems to me they were drunk when they thought it all up, as Furb said, which just makes me wonder, if they were drunk on something less potent when they imagined this, what will they think up next when they're drunk on this? I can't wait to see what's next, at any rate...

Do you have a car and and unopened beer bottle at home? Then you have everything you need to make your own.

Holy cow. That's amazing. I'd want some, but man, knowing that in my dark kitchen I've got a shelf full of dead critters wrapped around glass bottles would totally weird me out. I'd completely deserve whatever spiritual vengeance they might decide to visit upon me. Be a total riot a parties, though.

I was already reaching for my wallet when I read "sold out".

Would have gotten a stoat, as I happen TO BE A SQUIRREL LOVER (you are dead to me Fusoiya).

Well, it's yours for 35 pounds a bottle!

I would. I don't think I would drink it, I would just have it on a bookshelf as a conversation piece near my hollowed out paper weight hand grenade and my cane with a sword in it.

This is true...I'll be right back.

I guess they forgot to list the largest bottle made out of a taxidermy human corpse? Serious though, WHY?

That would be awesome. Difficult to drink out of but awesome.

Now thats a unique way to store ones alcahol...I want it!

Great! Now all I have to do is fly to Europe, and get it! It will definitely be worth it.

And thanks, I think it looks pretty nice, as well.

I don't know what's more terrifying, 55% beer or the dead animal it's stuffed into.

They went too far whith putting it inside roadkills....

I'd give it a try if someone were willing to share one of their 12 bottles with me, but at 110 proof, where does "beer" end, and for that matter where does "malt liquor" end, and "distilled spirits" begin?

At any rate I'll be keeping an eye out for Brew Dog, a cool name to boot, so I guess mission accomplished for dead squirrel beer.

konor77:

someone took one down and passed it around.
therefore there are now only 11 bottles of beer on the wall

If you dont get that, google it ;D

There's a Hare (Rabbit) also.
