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.
