The End of History and the Last Beer

The End of History from BrewDog on Vimeo.

I would give up quite a lot to work at BrewDog. BrewDog has actually been warring with the German brewery Schorschbrau to come up with the world's strongest beer. Unless Schorschbrau can come up with a way to make a stronger beer, this may indeed be the end of the road for ridiculously strong beers. The Germans may love David Hasselhoff, but they're also pretty crafty, so don't count them out yet.

Yes, each bottle of the End of History actually does come encased in a taxidermied varmint, so there's that. But since it costs $765 a bottle, I doubt that stoats will end up on the endangered species list. Plus, the run is limited to 12 bottles and all the critters were roadkill.

For the political philosophers out there hoping for a Fukuyama tidbit other than the reference in the video, your humble blogger is a distant cousin by marriage. Seriously. On my Dad's side.
