Creepy dead-animal wrapped beer costs $765 a bottle

This is weird:

You’d expect a lot from a bottle of beer costing $765. What you get is 55 percent alcohol — and served in a squirrel.

According to Scottish firm BrewDog, “The End of History” is the “strongest, most expensive and most shocking beer in the world.”

Just 12 bottles were made and the company has already sold out. They will be shipped out to buyers in the United States, Canada, Italy, Denmark, Scotland and England next week.

The dead animals which were used to create the beers’ unusual appearance were four squirrels, seven weasels and a hare. All were roadkill, James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog, told msnbc.com.

The name of the blond Belgian ale is taken from the title of a book by philosopher Francis Fukuyama, “The End of History and the Last Man” which the company said had been chosen to imply “this is to beer what democracy is to history.”

Watt said the beer should be treated with care when drinking.

“It tastes more like a whisky and you have got to handle it in that way as opposed to the way you would handle a normal beer,” he told msnbc.com.

I’ll stick with my Fat Tire, thank you very much.

    I think we’ve finally reached the end of the beer arms race.

    Are these the guys who made “Tactical Nuclear Penguin”? I just don’t think that stuff is beer- it’s a liquer. If you have to sip it from a snifter, it simply isn’t beer. Those taxidermy bottles would horrify PETA p[eople, which is good.

    So, where does a person get this Fat Tire? I can’t find a place in Virginia, never mind “jet pack” distance.
