Those nutters at Brewdog have pushed the boundaries of beer to the very limit. After creating the 32% abv Tactical Nuclear Penguin and the 41% abv Sink the Bismark, they have now produced a new world’s strongest beer called “The End of History,’ at an astounding 55% abv !!! That’s the same as barrel strength whisky, where even the fumes can make your eyes water.
At if that wasn’t enough to get lots of publicity and opprobrium for the anti- drinking lobby, they decided to present each bottle in a stuffed dead animal. Yes taxidermy beer bottles.
The stoats and grey squirrel used are all road kill, so I suppose they can claim to just be recycling.
In the words of the official press relief
“This 55% beer should be drank in small servings whilst exuding an endearing pseudo vigilance and reverence for Mr Stoat. This is to be enjoyed with a weather eye on the horizon for inflatable alcohol industry Nazis, judgemental washed up neo-prohibitionists or any grandiloquent, ostentatious foxes.”
The End of History: The name derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, who thought the fall of the Iron Curtain would end political evolution and make history uneventful thereafter. Lets see, war in the Balkans, 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, erosion of civil liberties, yup no excitement nowadays.
This beer is at the end of what’s possible (probably) and Brewdog’s final high abv beer, therefore the end of beer.
Only 11 bottles have been released, 7 stoats and 4 squirrels in case you wondered, and they have all been sold. So, sorry you have missed out. The tasting note says its blond Belgian ale, infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and Fresh juniper berries.
I wonder if there would be a market for personalised wine in weasel? Probably not
