New strongest beer goes on sale… in dead animals

275x250.jpgThe world's new strongest beer has gone on sale… in controversial bottles made using the bodies of dead animals.

Brewery BrewDog's 'The End of History' beer - which has a 55% ABV and sells for £500 per bottle - is the strongest and most expensive beer in the world.

It's a blond Belgian ale infused with nettles and juniper berries to give unique taste.

But it will be the bottle which stands out for most people, they're encased in the bodies of animals which have been specially produced by a taxidermist.

Stoats, squirrels and hare have been used… and just in case it wasn't odd enough already, some of then are dressed in eccentric outfits.
275x250.jpg BrewDog co-founder, James Watt commented: “We've torn up convention, blurred distinctions and pushed brewing and beer packaging to its absolute limits.

"This is the beer to end all beers. It’s an audacious blend of eccentricity, artistry and rebellion; changing the general perception of beer one stuffed animal at a time."

To achieve The End of History’s record-breaking alcohol content, brewers used an extreme freezing technique whereby the beer is kept at temperatures well below freezing to separate the water from the solution.

The process is then repeated dozens of times, requiring hundreds of litres of beer to be reduced through the process to produce just enough for a 330ml bottle – hence the record breaking cost and the fact that only 12 bottles are being produced.
