Beer Brewed from Elephant Dung!
Beer Brewed from Elephant Dung!

A Japanese brewery created a beer made from coffee beans that have been harvested from elephant dung and it sold out within minutes of going on sale. The beer, made by the Sankt Gallen brewery is called Un, Kono Kuro – a play on the Japanese word for “crap.” It’s described as a “chocolate stout” even though it contains no chocolate. The coffee beans used in the beer comes from Thailand’s Golden Triangle Foundation and cost approximately $100 per 1.25 ounces. My guess is that beer doesn’t come cheap, but a beer that does is getting a new look. Budweiser beer is introducing a bowtie-shaped can, designed to mirror its longtime bowtie logo. The can will be available in eight-packs beginning on May 6th. Keep in mind, you’ll be giving up a little bit of beer to get the new can, with it holding only 11.3 ounces rather than the standard 12.
