Beer me!

Dead animal beer bottles at £500 each ‘perverse’

A beer served in bottles made from stuffed animals has been criticised as “perverse” and “pushing the boundaries of acceptability”.

The End of History, made by BrewDog of Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, is 55% and £500 a bottle.

The bottles have been made using seven dead stoats, four squirrels and a hare, said to have died of natural causes.

However, Advocates for Animals and Alcohol Focus Scotland both condemned the marketing.

BrewDog claims the beer is the world’s strongest and most expensive.

Its co-founder James Watt said: “We want to show people there is an alternative to monolithic corporate beers, introduce them to a completely new approach to beer and elevate the status of beer in our culture.”

Much as I’d like to try a beer with 55% alcohol content, served in a squirrel, I think I’ll stick to Michelob Golden Draft.

/for the price of one of them dead animal beers, I could buy almost 40 cases of Michelob
