Earlier this week, Ohio raised its collective glasses to House Bill 37, legislation that eliminated its 12 percent limit on the alcohol-by-volume of beer sold or brewed in the state. So what’s the best possible way to commemorate the occasion? With a record-setting beer that is bottled and sold inside a taxidermy squirrel, obviously.
BrewDog, the always entertaining Scottish craft brewery, has announced that it will be introducing its 55% ABV End of History beer into the American market, brewed at its soon-to-open 10,000 square-foot brewery just outside of Columbus, Ohio. And each of the extremely limited-edition bottles will be tastefully packaged inside a dead rodent. The End of History is the third extra-high ABV beer that BrewDog has released, out-boozing its previous efforts, Sink The Bismarck (41% ABV) and Tactical Nuclear Penguin (32% ABV). The beer was originally released in the United Kingdom in 2010 and the dozen beer-stuffed squirrels and stoats sold out almost immediately.
