Now Brewing: Roadkill Beer

Image credit: 

A brewery in Scotland has begun brewing what they claim is the world's most potent beer. You'd think that would be enough of a marketing hook right there. But apparently not, because the most bizarre thing about The End of History beer is that it's sold in bottles nestled inside the taxidermied bodies of dead animals. Yes, that's correct.

This Telegraph article explains more, including the awful details of how the animals met their maker:

A taxidermist in Doncaster worked on the animals, which were not killed for bottling the new drink, with some having been killed on the roads.

Wow. As if dead rodent beer wasn't unappetizing enough, now we get to picture roadkill rodent beer. After hearing that, I don't think there is anything that could be said about this product that would make me want to buy it.

Outfits featured on some of the animals include a kilt and a top hat.

OK, maybe that.
