Combine Your Vices with Nicotine Beer

Beer and NicotineThis has been floating around the Web for a couple months now, but it's such an interesting idea we couldn't help but cover it. Apparently, a German company is deveoping a nicotine-laced beer called NicoShot to help cut down the craving for people trying to quit smoking, or at least make it through a night out without stepping outside to smoke.

Nautilus GmbH Laboratoriumsbedarf announced today the recent European launch of NicoShot™, the world’s first smoking-cessation beer containing a shot of natural nicotine, about what you would get in a couple of regular filtered cigarettes.

NicoShot is brewed to the German Purity Law of 1516 and contains 3 milligrams of naturally derived nicotine alkaloids, 63 calories and 4.5 carbohydrates, with 6.3% alcohol by volume per 250 ml shot can. The cutting-edge nicotine beer is fire brewed separately and a standardized herbal extract of natural tobacco leaf Nicotiana tabacum L.) of the Solanaceae nightshade family is added at the end of the natural brewing process.

The press release goes on to state that "NicoShot...can significantly control cigarette cravings, yet it tastes like a fine imported European beer." Why do we picture it tasting more along the lines of when someone puts a cigarette out in your beer can?

Read the full press release here.
