Today In Beer

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

BrewDog Brewery in Scotland has yet again pushed the envelope with their beer. In "honor" of Prince William and Kate's Royal Wedding (these are Scots, love lost and all), they have brewed up Royal Verility Performance Ale. A beer brewed with viagra.

A limited-edition beer containing Viagra to mark the forthcoming royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29th. Brewed using various well known aphrodisiacs, the limited edition artisanal beer will only be available to buy from the website.

According to the specially commissioned label, the Royal Virility Performance contains Viagra, chocolate, Horny Goat Weed and ‘a healthy dose of sarcasm’. The beer is a 7.5% ABV India Pale Ale and has been brewed at BrewDog’s brewery in Fraserburgh.

In other news, Sam Adams (always a solid brewery) is soon to release special edition cases of their Latitude 48 brew. Latitude 48 is an IPA brewed with several varities of hops all grown on the 48th Latitude.

Along with that agressively-hopped IPA will be single-hop varieties of of Latitude 48; From the article:
Our source says the Variety Pack will be a 12 pack, featuring the Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA as well as several single-hop editions of the beer. It’s basically a beer-tasting school in a box!

The single-hop versions of the beer (confirmed by recently-approved label variations over at will be Hallertau, Simcoe, East Kent Golding, Ahtanum and Zeus.
Essentially, each case will include 2 bottles of Latitude 48, and 2 bottles of each type of "Deconstructed Latitude 48." EAch hop used in the main beer will have its own beer in this variety pack.

This is awesome for several reasons; why I really like it is that it will give drinkers a chance to really taste what very different types of hops do to a beer individually; what Hallertau tastes like, what Simcoe tastes like, etc. What a unique way to present your real, complex beer: by deconstructing it. I'm geeked.
