Today in Taxidermy and Tippling: A 55% ABV Beer in a Dead-Squirrel Bottle

Jul 22, 2010 at 10:15 am
Via Eater comes news from Scotland: Craft brewer Brewdog has introduced what it claims to be the strongest beer -- or, for you beer snobs who will quibble with this until my eyes roll back in my head, "beer" -- in the world: The End of History. It boasts 55% ABV and comes in a bottle encased in a dead squirrel (or hare or stoat, apparently) carcass. This video explains (?) it all.

Warning: The video contains one instance of mildly NSFW language, Scottish whimsy and a reference to Francis Fukuyama.

If anyone wants to shell out the $750+ to buy Gut Check a bottle, we will be more than happy to conduct a taste test.
