As the art of craft brewing allows for much experimentation, recently it’s taken a turn for the baroque. Fortune reports that there are now craft beers brewed with everything from whale testicles to yeast that’s traveled through space.
While these “stunt” beers certainly capture the attention of the media, that’s often the driving motive. “…[T]he problem is beers brewed solely to capture the general public’s attention are oftentimes … well, let’s be kind and say less than optimal,” notes Fortune, citing an Icelandic beer brewed with the testicles of fin whales smoked with dry sheep dung, pizza beer, doughnut beer and more.
