Ghost Deer: More Beer x Taxidermy From BrewDog

Some brewers use fluff like cans that tell you when they’re cold to stand out. BrewDog, on the other hand, uses animal carcasses. Mmm, carcassy.

Ghost Deer is a 28% golden belgian ale aged in “amazing” oak casks, fermented for 10 weeks, yada, yada, yada … It’s beer served from a taxidermied deer head. Whatever. I know the perfect shirt to wear with it. (Thanks, Ken!)

What could make a 32% beer even better? Scottish accents and penguin costumes. Watch the lads from Scottish brewery BrewDog show how they create the world’s strongest beer, Tactical Nuclear Penguin. (Hint: It involves freezing their mega-mature stout and brief, simulated penguin sex.)

Unfortunately, only 500 bottles of the beer will be produced with one 330ml bottle set to cost £30. Or, 50 American bones.
