Beer Made from Elephant Dung

Quote:
It could be the tipple of choice for those who love getting completely trunk – a beer made from elephant dung.

A brewery has created the beverage using coffee beans that have passed through an elephant’s digestive system – and the first batch has sold out within minutes.

Japanese maker Sankt Gallen has called it Un, Kono Kuro – a play on the Japanese word for ‘crap’.

A contributor who tasted the beer for website RocketNews24.com said: ‘Usually people talk about aftertaste when drinking beer but with Un, Kono Kuro the word afterglow is much more appropriate.

‘After downing the last drop, slowly rising from my throat and mouth was that afterglow. The combination of bitter and sweet stayed fresh and lingered in my head. It was a familiar aroma that accompanied me through the entire beer.’

The coffee beans used in the beer come from elephants at Thailand’s Golden Triangle Elephant Foundation. Just 35g of the ingredient cost £65 – the high price reflecting the difficulty of getting a usable quantity from the animals.

The creation follows last year’s launch of elephant dung coffee, the ‘earthy and smooth’ blend selling for £720 a kg.

The Sankt Gallen brewery has called its new beer a ‘chocolate stout’, even though it does not contain any chocolate.

It has no plans to put the beer on tap at its new shop in Tokyo.

Re: Beer Made from Elephant Dung

There was a time in my life where I probably would have given this a try. I will admit I'm still intrigued
