LONDON — The strongest and most expensive beer ever created sold out within hours Friday, a Scottish brewery said, as they courted controversy by packaging the bottles inside the bodies of stuffed animals.
BrewDog, the self-described maverick brewery, presented the beer -- which contains a record 55 percent alcohol -- inside the bodies of dead squirrels and stoats.
Animal rights activists rushed to condemn the stunt.
"It's pointless and it's very negative to use dead animals when we should be celebrating live animals," Advocates for Animals policy director Libby Anderson told BBC Scotland.
"This seems to be a perverse idea."
Perverse? What's so perverse about it? Are leather shoes perverse? How about baseballs? Me thinks that animal rights activists are going too far here. The beer is being packaged in DEAD squirrels, not live ones. Good idea. Dead squirrels have no rights, not even animal rights. In fact, I wouldn't mind squirreling away a few bottles of Shiner Bock myself. LOL.
Let's show the animal rights activist how we feel about their silly-assed complaining by taking up a collection to purchase a gift for them - Namely a copy of one my favorite books, 101 Uses for a Dead Cat!! :mrgreen:
