I’m a big supporter of micro-breweries and the interesting concoctions of ale they come up with.
But I was gobsmacked to read about a micro-brewery in Iceland which is brewing a special ale infused with – wait for it – smoked fin whale testicles.
Aside from the fact that fin whaling, which Iceland does, is barbaric and should be banned, who in their right mind would want to drink a beer made with whale testicles prepared using an ancient Icelandic method that also sees them salted?
It’s been a long process to brew the beer, says the brewery.
Seeing as the average fin whale (an endangered species) can live up to 90 years, they’re not wrong.
