Beer on sale packaged in dead squirrels

A Scottish brewery has created the world’s strongest and most expensive beer and are selling the bottles packaged inside dead squirrels and stoats.

BrewDog brewery made the drink, which contains 55% alcohol, but have come under fire from animal rights activists for their unusual choice of packaging.

Libby Anderson, Advocates for Animals policy director told BBC Scotland: "It’s pointless and it’s very negative to use dead animals when we should be celebrating live animals. This seems to be a perverse idea."

BrewDog managing director James Watt told AFP: "For the final instalment in the strong beer series, we wanted to create something epic, something monumental."

The limited edition beer cost £700 for a squirrel bottle or £500 for a stoat bottle and sold out within hours of going on sale.
