BrewDog sees a reason to cheer in roadkill with stuffed animals beer bottle
For the taxidermy art followers, here’s the reason to cheer with BrewDog’s most expensive beer. The award-winning Scottish brewery has unveiled their 55% ABV “The End of History” beer which will be sold inside dead stuffed animals (a stuffed stoat or gray squirrel). The name derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, “this is to beer what democracy is to history.” This blond Belgian ale is infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and fresh juniper berries. Only 12 bottles have been made and each comes with its authenticity certificate. The collection features a limited run of 11 bottles, 7 stoats and 4 gray squirrels. The packaging uses road kill animals dressed in eccentric outfits and each bottle is priced at $762 for the stoat model and $1,067 for the gray squirrel.
Company co-founder, James Watt said, “In true BrewDog fashion we’ve torn up convention, blurred distinctions and pushed brewing and beer packaging to its absolute limits. This is the beer to end all beers. It’s an audacious blend of eccentricity, artistry and rebellion; changing the general perception of beer one stuffed animal at a time.”
Update: All 12 bottles of this most expensive beer has been sold out in a day.
