I love brewdog beers and have a few in my collection waiting for the log fire and dark winter days to drink the stronger ones where as their lower ABV are a joy to drink anytime of the year.
But they have produced the last of their line of extra strong beers at 55% ok thats strong but the thing that will get them a lot of press (which is their goal I assume) is that the limited edition one off run of 11 bottles is that each is stuffed within some stuffed roadkill, I can see the headlines now…..”Over the border and over the top, brewers kill animals to serve their beer from”, “BrewSquirrel, roadkill beer” you will come up with better.
Of course most of us will ever taste it as its £500.00 for the Stoat bottle and £700.00 for the Squirrel bottle.
Unless its a big ruse from the cheeky Scots. anyway good luck to them with their latest ploy to make beer more exiting for us non vegetarians
The End of History: The name derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, this is to beer what democracy is to history. Fukuyama defined history as the evolution of the political system and traced this through the ages until we got the Western Democratic paradigm. For Fukuyama this was the end point of man’s political evolution and consequently the end of history. The beer is the last high abv beer we are going to brew, the end point of our research into how far the can push the boundaries of extreme brewing, the end of beer.
The End of History, at 55%, is the final instalment of our efforts to redefine the limits of contemporary brewing.
This blond Belgian ale 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. The striking packaging was created by a very talented taxidermist and all the animals used were road kill. This release is a limited run of 11 bottles, 7 stoats and 4 grey squirrels. Each ones comes with its own certificate of authenticity.
