Want to drink a 50% beer from some roadkill?

end of history

Do you like your beer strong? Do you like beer to come in a bottle that has been jammed into a stuffed squirrel that has been scraped from the roadside?

You might be interested in the (possibly fictional) ale called 'The End of History' made by some hilarious japester brewers called Brew Dog.

These zany piss-ants have got their thinking caps on to irritate everyone senseless with some high-brow bollocks which involves the work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, claims that brewing is being pushed to the limits and that we'll all have our little tiny minds completely blown as we watch these cretins 'tear up convention, blurr distinctions and push brewing and beer packaging to its absolute limits.'

Apparently, this beer is "an audacious blend of eccentricity, artistry and rebellion; changing the general perception of beer one stuffed animal at a time," as well as being "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."

If this beer does indeed exist, which it seems not to, then you can expect a beer that is "infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and Fresh juniper berries."

Only 12 bottles have been made and each comes with its own certificate and is presented in a stuffed stoat or grey squirrel.

Watch a video about it all over the jump. Be careful... you might die of wackiness if you do.

    It's not fictional...http://twitpic.com/27jrgf (a guy I follow on Twitter, the bottle on his desk).

    That guy has too much disposable income...Someone who can spend £500 on one of those is either a attention seeking whore or a fuknutt
  • Jase
    Or knows the guys at BrewDog?

    Arr, there you go. He's the director of the company that's doing the PR for BrewDog.

    @Jase The guy has a Macbook pro. Pretty much proves that he is a twat with not perception of the value of things. A classic example of: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/apple

    But as Oatmeal points out, it's not the owning of an Apple product that makes you a twat; it's the worshipping of said product and then crying your eyes out when the new version comes out...then eventually giving in and upgrading because you don't want to be an tech-outsider. I'm currently working on a PC I bought some 2006 and I'm on a (non-smart)phone contract that's ended and rolling. Does that mean I shouldn't consider a MacBook Pro / iPhone4 because I might be grouped as an Apple fag? There's a fine line between Apple user and Apple fag.

    You don't get much beer though, do you? C'mon a squirrel full. How about doing a demi-john inside a labrador or a goat?

    I wouldn't consider an iphone because they are absolute jizz. If you have money to burn then there is nothing wrong with the macbook (except it looks pig ugly, like all apple products - but most pc/laptops are equally ugly). Don't have money to burn, but have a little computer experience? Buy a decent laptop and install OSX on it. Hackintosh = you get the one great thing apple have managed to pump out, without paying a premium for their generic, uglified hardware.
