I'm Puking Already: Real Beer Brewed With Bull Testicles

October 3, 2012


Wynkoop Brewing Company of Dever, Colorado, created the concept of Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout (rocky mountain oyster is slang for bull balls BTW) as an April Fool's Joke earlier this year, and now it's becoming a real product thanks to a bunch of f***ing weirdos that actually wanted to try it. What the hell is wrong with people?

As we joked in the video, we really do love to make beer with uniquely local ingredients. Rocky Mountain Oysters (aka fried bull testicles) are arguably our state's most popular local dish. They've also been enjoyed by humans for centuries. So they're a dream-come-true ingredient for a Wynkoop beer.

The beer is made with Colorado-grown base malts, roasted barley, seven specialty malts (including special B and smoked malt) and Styrian Goldings hops. The beer gets a small dose of sea salt, too. "It gives the beer an extra layer of Rocky Mountain oyster flavor," Brown notes, "and additional texture."

As much as I have no interest in drinking this stuff, the brew does serve a valuable purpose. So, here's the plan-- "Order your friends a round of bull nut beer and yourself a Sierra Nevada?" Bingo. It's like you and I really are thinking with the same alcohol-clouded brain sometimes.

Thanks to Ginger kid, who doesn't drink anything with balls in it but boba tea and even that freaks him out sometimes.

    As a professional alcoholic, I can think of few drinks which I would decline in the dreaded "drying out on a desert island" scenario. This is a drink I would refuse.

    well its probally better, because alcohol dehydrates the body.

    for $5.00 I will teabag your coors light. the end results will probably be the same.

  • I'm not a beer drinker, but if I was, this would sound great! I love rocky mountain oysters. In fact, I had them for lunch yesterday. They are one of my all time favorite foods.

    Not sure if serious....or a little gay

  • Don't knock them until you have tried them! They are actually really good!

  • spectre99

    violation. creepy and nasty. its another animals balls for cryin out loud

  • No use in throwing away good meat when the rest of the cow is going to be turned into hamburgers anyway. I suppose it might be creepy but its definitely not nasty. Very tasty!

    It sounds disgusting but the Scots have haggis (which is actually pretty good), Swedes and Norwegians eat sheeps brains, the French have snails, the English have black (blood) pudding which I also like. So the aversion is mostly a psychological one, probably if I ate it without knowing what it was I'd like it!

  • I can't say I have ever eaten any of those, but I would say it does help not to know what they are when you first try them. That is what my dad did with me when he had me first try them at a Rockies baseball game when I was a kid and had I known what they were before I had them, I might not have tried them. Now like 17 years later, I still have them for lunch a couple times a month and still love them.
