Funny Foto Friday: The $765 beer...squirrel!

I couldn't make this up if I tried.  A Scottish firm BrewDog is selling a 110 proof (55% alcohol) beer that not only costs $765, but is served in...squirrels.  While the article is quoted with saying that they were all roadkill, strangely PITA was not asked for a comment.

Mmmm, tastes like nuts.




(By the way, for those of you that are wondering, I did forward this over to Jamoosh prior to posting it on my blog. Of course, never one to be out of the beer loop, he said that someone had already sent it to him. Jamoosh, you never disappoint.)

And I guess one could say that by the looks of things you are getting the hurl of the squirrel!

You said NUTS!!!

At least the bottle helps to do away with the flattish roadkill look.

I heard about this - so gross.

The cigarettes come out of the squirrel's ass.

Did you get these as our race trinkets for tomorrow?

Imagine taking a swig of refreshment only to look up into the gaze of a dead squirrel- ew. Just ew.

Can you just buy the squirrel cozy?

That's nasty!

I don't think that really fits the definition of beer - they've got to distill to get to that alcohol level.

But you have to wonder what kind of lunatic is willing to pay for a liquor inside a stuffed squirrel?

I typically prefer to pour my beer from either a possum or a racoon, depending on the type of brew. Never considered trying it with a stuffed one. Might cut down on the struggle they seem to put up.

yeah, this was all over the beer lists around here. Ewww...

Utterly disturbing in the best way. Also, apparently there is a belgian brewer who is trying to compete by making a stringer beer. No word yet on what he's encasing his beer in....

Freaking gross! Just saying:)

Have a wonderful weekend Adam!

F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S
wait, those squirrel buddies are for fakes right? Ya, ok they are, whew ya.. they are, just like the "Cheeseburger Shake at Jamba Juice?" ok good...

Andrew Opala said...

Adam, I sense a whole series of blog posts of furry animals passing liquids or solids through their insides, and being consumed by humans.

P.S. I think I know the one on the left.

Cynthia O'H said...

That's just plain gross. If I saw it face to critter, I swear I'd throw up.

Chris K said...

$765 seems a bit steep. I'd gladly pay, oh, $599 for that bad boy.

RunnuRMark said...

oh man...that's just...i don't know what that is. wow.

Glenn Jones said...

Outsanding! Have a squirrel puke up a brewski into your glass....

This is inspirational, since I'm considering making some home-brew and serving it in pesky neighbor cats.

Did I just type that out loud?
