Ballsy brew! How does bull testicle beer taste?

on 22/10/12 at 6:29 am


A craft beer with brewed with bull testicles has to be a joke, right?  Well, it started out that way, but ended up becoming a very real beer indeed.

Wynkoop Brewing Company’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout was nothing more than an April Fools’ Day joke. The Denver brewery made a parody video announcing a new locally-sourced beer brewed with “one of Colorado’s unique culinary jewels,” cooked bull testicles, known out West as Rocky Mountain oysters.

The two-minute clip featured Wynkoop employees earnestly discussing their creation, bar patrons enjoying deeply satisfying sips of the stout and lots of holding and jiggling of large bovine boy parts. It was equal parts unsettling and hilarious.

The video went viral, and requests starting coming in for the beer.
