Steroid-packed beer contains Olympic banned substances

275x250.jpg We hope they won't be drinking this beer in the Olympic Athletes' Village, because 'Never Mind the Anabolics' has been brewed containing eight ingredients that are banned for professional athletes.

The limited edition beer contains creatine, guarana, lycii berries, kola nut, Gingko, matcha tea, maca powder and steroids - all banned at the Olympics due to performance enhancing effects.

Scottish craft brewery, BrewDog says it launched the beer in a bid to undermine global sponsorship deals for this summer’s games.

James Watt, cofounder of BrewDog said: "It seems a beer laced with performance enhancing ingredients isn’t actually illegal, but it is definitely frowned upon.

"However, we don’t think Never Mind the Anabolics is as absurd and obnoxious as the tenuous sponsorship deals from fast food chains and global mega breweries that seem to define the people’s games.

"A burger, can of fizzy pop and an industrial lager are not the most ideal preparation for the steeple chase or the dressage (for human or horse).

"So we decided to give the athletes something that was going to make them happier and better. A way to relax before a big event and at the same time, increase your chances of winning."
