imagesA soon-to-be released beer makers say is made with whale meat has sparked a sea of criticism from some conservationists who say the brew is “immoral.”

Icelandic brewer Steðji brewery and whaling company Hvalur teamed up to release the beer to coincide with a mid-winter festival in honor of the Norse god Thor, reports the Independent.

The brewery says the beer is healthy because it has no added sugar and because whale meal is full of protein and is very low in fat. The 5.2-percent-alcoholic beer claims that those who drink it will become “true Vikings.”
