BrewDog USA is going to revive dead squirrels and stoats.
The Scottish brewery announced Wednesday that the first beer that it will produce at its new Ohio brewery will be its infamous The End of History, a 55 percent Belgian-style ale that will celebrate the state doing away with its cap on alcohol in beer.
The beer will be an exclusive brew made for Equity for Punks USA shareholders "who invest more than $20,000," the brewery said in a blog post. Earlier this summer, the brewery announced an Equity for Punks crowdfunding effort, which has a goal of raising $50 million to help bolster its new operation in the United States.
The End of History, first released in 2013, made international news not only for its high alcohol content, but also because bottles were inserted into the carcasses of grey squirrels and stoats. (See the photo.)
There were only 11 bottles produced and they sold for $765. Not surprising, animal rights groups weren't thrilled with the beer.
"Today is a red-letter day for the Ohio beer scene – a milestone set to be written into brewery ledgers the length and breadth of the state," BrewDog said in a blog post announcing the revival of The End of History. "August 31st 2016 officially sees the lifting of the draconian legislation that previously made it illegal for breweries in Ohio to brew beer over 12% abv. From this day forward, craft beer in the state has no limits. And we are going to mark that in the only way we know."
