Featured Beer: Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout

Wynkoop Brewing Company‘s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout might not be for everyone, but you have to admit, it takes a lot of balls to brew a beer like this.

 

 

I already know what you’re going to ask, so let’s get it out of the way.  YES.  It’s made with REAL BULL TESTICLES!  Here’s Wynkoop’s description, right off the can:

“A luscious, uniquely ballsy stout with notes of roasted barley, coffee and nuts.”

It might be some relief to know that the “oysters” are only dipped into the beer during the brewing process to impart their flavor and presumably some masculine mojo magic.

As legend has it, Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout came about as a bit of a practical joke.  Wynkoop released the video below as an April Fools joke last year, and the fake beer garnered so much real attention from beer enthusiasts that Wynkoop decided to make Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout a reality.

A lot of you might think Wynkoop is nuts for making a beer with such an unusual ingredient, but the brew has been a big hit at their brewery pub, and the very limited edition run of cans they produced are highly sought after.  Our beer guys here at Liquor Barn knew that you guys would be dying to try this, so we pulled some strings and were able to get a very limited amount in store for our customers to enjoy!
