Looking back at the beer industry, it’s absolutely amazing to see how far beer has come from back in the days of our founding fathers.
If you asked Ben Franklin if he ever imagined that the Philadelphia area would be home to so many unique and original craft breweries he would have said you were crazy. Well beer has progressed by amazing proportions, and one brewery has taken this progression to a whole new level with their Beer Geek Brunch beer, also known as the Weasel Shit beer. The brewery is Mikkeller out of Scandinavia, and yes, there is actual weasel shit in this beer. You see this beer uses the most expensive coffee in the world called Civet Coffee to make this incredible Imperial Oatmeal Stout. So right about now you’re probably asking yourself what is so special about this Civet coffee and where does the weasel shit come in? Well Civet coffee is coffee gathered up by a weasel like animal called the Civet cat. Civet cats only eat the best and ripest coffee berries which they then digest and are broken down by the enzymes in their body. Once they relieve themselves of these coffee berries, the weasel shit is then collected by man and used to make the Civet Coffee and apparently one hell of a great beer in Mikkellers Beer Geek Brunch. On a surprising note about the coffee itself, Civet coffee is known to have a strong taste and an excessively strong aroma,who would have guessed?
