Dead Squirrel Beer

November 20, 2016
The $20,000 Rare Craft Beer That Comes Packaged in a Squirrel

“I absolutely love the beautiful, yet disturbing nature of taxidermy, so packaging our most evocative beer in such an unconventional, BrewDog way made sense,” says Watt. “Beer is art. Art is also art.”

I'm trying to figure out which turns my stomach more. Drinking this particular beer straight from the bottle? Or paying $20,000 for the privilege to do so?

$20K for a beer! This is what John Williams of Shadow Stats has been warning of for years! Oh yeah, shoot the messanger!!!!

What's next? Are they going to charge us for checking accounts, water and airplane meals?

Oh sure, it starts with squirrel gravy and biscuits and the next thing you know, it takes a freakin wheel barrow or money to buy a beer! I knew it! Okay, I didn't exactly know it, but I knew it on some level. Many levels!!!

We are so screwed! Can you say INFLATION!!!!!!!!

Psst... Hety, buddy. Sell you champagne wrapped in chinchilla for just $19k.

Capitalism, black markets, substitution, and hedonic quality adjustments keeping prices low, baby. That's what I'm talking about!

Nobody objects to wine, or whisky, or beer that's been stored in dead tree, so what's wrong with dead squirrel? Speciesism is what this is.

dearieme,

Hahaha! You're right. I'm a dead squirrel bigot. No desire to drink from one's dead mouth!
