BrewDog’s End of History Belgian ale
A new Scottish brewery is selling beer in a unique bottle – in a dead squirrel! They’ve created a 55% alcohol Belgian ale called End of History and packaged it in a squirrel taxidermy bottle. And because it’s so unique, people aren’t just buying it to show off – they are buying it for collectors! The limited edition bottles are also made of taxidermy.
During the initial run of this Belgian blond ale, only 12 bottles of End of History were produced. The brewers used taxidermy squirrels and a freezing technique to reduce the amount of water. In order to create the bottles, hundreds of gallons of beer were processed. And the beer was stored below zero degrees Fahrenheit for up to eight weeks, so it has an ABV of 55%.
A 55 ABV Belgian ale is the perfect beer to toast the end of the world. This 55-percent brew is infused with fresh juniper berries and nettles from the Scottish Highlands. And if you’re into superstrong alcoholic drinks, End of History may be for you. But be warned: only 11 bottles of this unusual beer will be available for purchase!
Hop City Brewing Company’s Barking Squirrel Lager
The brewmasters at Hop City Brewing Company have created a lager that is both complex and flavorful. The resulting beer is a rich amber ale with rusty orange hues. The beer pours with one finger of white head and leaves light lacing on the glass. The brew is easy to drink and is a great accompaniment to smoked Gouda, BBQ chicken, apple pie, and grilled meat. You can find this beer at Bottle King stores nationwide and at various other liquor stores.
The resulting amber ale is a smooth, highly drinkable lager with a subtle hop aroma. With 24 IBUs, Barking Squirrel offers a medium-bodied taste that blends roasted caramel malt sweetness and noble hop aroma. It is a pleasant lager with an aftertaste of bitter hops. Hop City Brewing Company’s Barking Squirrel is available in cans of 12 oz.
The Barking Squirrel’s bark is a unique addition to this beer. Squirrels have been known to bark at people, but this behaviour often stems from a fear that they are being followed or are a threat to their nest. While the sound of the barking may resemble that of a cat hiss or dog bark, it has become synonymous with craft brewing. The Barking Squirrel Lager is one of Hop City Brewing Company’s flagship brews. It is deep orange in color, with a distinctive aroma of noble hops and burnt orange. It has a medium body and is balanced by a smooth hop bitterness.
Kevin and John craft beer
If you want a unique gift for someone special, you can buy a craft beer from Kevin and John in a squirrel-shaped koozie. The beer is the ultimate way to show your love for the little guy or gal. You can also use the koozie as a pint glass. The owners of Kevin and John’s are dynamic beer brewers who are equally comfortable coming up with new recipes or sweeping the brewery floor. The Barking Squirrel craft beer comes in a squirrel because Kevin and John’s zealous pours have earned the brewery two gold medals in the 2011 World Beer Awards.
Kevin and John’s flagship beer, Barking Squirrel, is a complex, flavorful lager. The beer pours a rich amber color with rusty orange hues. A finger-sized white head forms on top and leaves light lacing on the glass. This beer has a nice, clean taste. It’s available in bottle form at Bottle King stores. If you’re looking for a squirrel-shaped craft beer, look no further.
