It’s billed as the most shocking, strongest and most expensive beer in the world, and if you want a bottle it’s too late. Only 12 bottles of The End of History beer were produced by Scotland’s BrewDog brewery and they all found homes within a day of going on the market.
There are several things that make The End of History unique: first, it has an alcohol content of 55 per cent, second, it sells from £500 ($770) to £700 ($1,080), and finally, each bottle is packaged inside a dead animal. The 12 bottles have been made featuring seven dead stoats (a kind of weasel), four squirrels and one rabbit.
The individual bottles were hand crafted by a taxidermist in Doncaster and each animal died of natural causes before they were used to hold the world’s most expensive beer. The outfits were made-to-measure and each bottle has its own quirky personality.
For those interested in the actual beer, it’s a blond Belgian ale with touches of nettles and juniper berries — and in order to achieve the brain-blasting alcohol content, it had to be created using extreme freezing techniques.
If You missed the opportunity to buy The End of History, the world’s strongest beer, You can still buy some of BrewDog’s other limited edition, crazy high ABV beers like a 32% Tactical Nuclear Penguin and the 41% Sink the Bismarck.
