September 4, 2012 - "The End of History"



Quote:
In 2010, BrewDog, a Scottish-based brewery, packaged bottles of its new beer, "The End Of History," inside the bodies of dead animals. The beer, which was 55 percent alcohol, cost $1000 if housed inside a dead squirrel and $750 if stuffed inside a stoat.

The bottle wraps are ... interesting. The alcohol level is ... interesting. The price is ridiculous, but that's a relative measure (not my ridiculous relatives, that's a different subject).

There's a serious specialty beer store a couple blocks away, Chuck's Hop Shop, and I'll check with them later to see if I can find anything from BrewDog. If I find anything ... interesting, I'll report back (after I regain consciousness).

55% alcohol is 110 proof. It can't be a beer. you can only achieve those levels of alcohol by distilling.
5.5% alcohol, yes.

I'd pay more for a stoat as we have plenty of gray squirrels around here, not to mention an occasional squirell.

Quote:
“The End of History” began life as a blond Belgian ale and was subsequently freeze distilled many times, infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and Fresh juniper berries and ... then put in a bottle created by a taxidermist. To understand just where the Gray Squirrels and Mr Stoat fit into the picture (we’re still trying to figure it out),

I thought about the very high alcohol content vs beer appellation too and I reasoned that despite the method and result, they call it "beer" because they're a brewery and they start with beer making ingredients.

110 proof? I may need an ice cube or two with that.

Wuss.

I kid. A chaser, sure...but ice?


Sundae  Tuesday Sep 4 03:56 PM

I do not want my beer sicked up by a squirrel or a stoat.
I do not like.

Lightweight. I thought it took more than over-proof rum and beads for you to get naked.

I was gonna comment on that before you edited-to-add, but then I had to go to class - but yeah, I think I'd call freeze-distilled beer close enough to beer to let 'em. Like, if you really wanna call applejack an ~80-proof cider... well, all they did was take water out via ice, I'll let it slide even if you're kinda bending the definition a bit.
Plus, is there a different word for beer that's been frozen to increase its alcohol content, other than beer, like applejack is to cider?

Y'know with a quarter keg and a creative mortician, you can be the bar at your own wake.


...bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "tap that ass".

I see that only foot and I were serious about helping the squirrels.
