Teddy Bear vs The End of History
Yes, we know this title sounds like some Neil Gaiman fever dream, but it's really about beer. Very strong beer, in fact. Basically, you can stop sending us emails telling us about the 110 proof Scottish beer called The End of History. Yes, we have heard of this (formerly*) strongest beer in the world. We didn't post it because drinking out of a dead critter gives us the heebie jeebies (plus the whole roadkill decanter thing has been done before).
Also, we're much more interested in the Internet's response to this big-proof beer. One certain response actually - Tom Scott's attempt to help the brewer market a lower-cost version of beer served in an animal. He has shoved a can of cheap beer up the ass of a teddy bear and mailed it off to the brewery to help them offer a budget version of their hoity toity beer. Now THAT'S something we can get behind. Check out the whole saga at Tom's website. [Link via b3ta]
* Did we say formerly? Oh, right, because some Dutch guy just made a 120 proof beer called Start the Future. Boosh. [Thanks for the link, Doug]
