I Don’t Care If It IS the Best Thing Since the Invention of Beer . . .

| January 3, 2013

. . . my answer is still, “Uh, no thanks.”

Wynkoop Brewing Company’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout will now be sold nationwide in cans–available in (what else?) two-packs starting this month.

No, I’m not kidding.  And yes:  it is indeed flavored with what its name implies.

Edited to add:  Here’s the April Fool’s Joke video that started this whole brew-haha – which later turned serious.  Enjoy.

    Governor Hickenlooper started that brewery.

    I don’t like beer anyway, I’m a wine drinker, but we had Rocky Mountain Oysters at The Fort last weekend and they were pretty good. Buffalo tongue was great too.

  2. UpNorth says:

    Hmm, mountain oyster flavored beer? Maybe it’s like antabuse, it’ll make you sick, not drunk?

  3. Hondo says:

    Common Sense: to each his/her own. For me, mountain oysters fall into the same category as chitlins: only if I’m literally starving.

  4. Yummmm… Nobody tell TSO.

  5. JP says:

    I’m not gonna lie…

    After the first 6 beers, I’ll drink anything.

    I don’t like thinking about testicles other than my own, I will take a pass, thank you very much.

  7. OWB says:

    Attempting to clean up the first thoughts that came to mind here, but so far no success.

    Is it required that…nope that won’t work.

    What if…nope. that won’t work either.

    Let’s just leave it that I will join those who are not swallowing, uh, er, uh, er, this brew.

  8. Nik says:

    That shit. Ain’t. Right.

  9. Ex-PH2 says:

    Sheep are good for several things: wool, keeping the lawn short, and wolf bait.

    Oh, yeah, they used to keep my dog Annie busy. She was a border collie, acted on her own instincts when herding them. Smart dog.

    Somwhere there must be a lot of bulls singing alto.

  11. Hondo says:

    I think you need to watch the vid, Ex-PH2. It ain’t sheep that are involved. (smile)

  12. Common Sense says:

    @3 – they actually chop them up fairly small and bread them so it’s like popcorn chicken. You just have to get around the idea of them 😉

  13. Hondo says:

    Common Sense: same is true for chitlins, or so I’ve been told.

    Sorry, but you’re not changing my mind about either. Short of literal starvation, it will be a cold day in hell before I eat either. (smile)

  14. OWB says:

    Hondo – there are soooo many things to consume out there that I already know are good, and so little time to get around to them all that I must concur with you. Why force myself to consume that which sounds utterly disgusting? If others want to, fine with me, but I will stick to what I already know to be wonderful.

  15. NHSparky says:

    Screw it–considering some of the stuff I’ve eaten on some of the places I’ve been, no huge deal.

    And that’s just the stuff I KNEW about.

  16. USMCE8Ret says:

    Fuck that. NOOOOOOOO way!

  17. PigmyPuncher says:

    It’s not April, so this must be from the duffelblog right?

  18. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    Sparky. You realize that this makes you a nut muncher. Hey, correct me if I’m wrong.

  19. NHSparky says:

    Like I said, if that’s the worst thing I ever ate…(and it isn’t.)

    Balut. For starters.

  20. PintoNag says:

    I’ll eat chicken gizzards. The other sweetmeats…I’ll pass. Thanks.
