Whale beer fears a load of bollocks
A BREWERY has come under fire from animal rights activists for making a beer using TESTICLES of an endangered whale.
Icelandic brewery Stedji claims every keg of its ‘Hvalur 2’ beer includes at least one of the testicles of a fin whale.
And they guarantee each gooliie has been prepared in the traditional Icelandic way – smoking it with dried sheep dung.
In winter, Icelanders shrug aside depressing cold and long nights by eating delicacies like rotting shark, ram’s testicles, sheep’s heads and blood puddings.
Anti-whaling groups claim this is merely a marketing gimmick that “sends a clear ‘two fingers’ to those who love and respect whales.”
But brewery chiefs say the fin whale is not in danger of extinction and the beer has been cleared by heath officials.
