Roadkill beer

Man, I thought this was a joke the first time I saw it, so I skipped over the post. And THEN I assumed that the animals were fake, so I didn't think it was that interesting. But then I realized that the post was real, and the animals were real.

Don't know what I'm talking about?

The Scottish brewery BrewDog has made a 55% ABV beer (ABV is Alcohol By Volume. To really understand the significance of this number, consider that most beer has an ABV of between 4-6%. Vodka has an ABV usually of around 40%. YEAH.) called "The End of History". 
A quote from their website:
This blond Belgian ale is infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and Fresh juniper berries. Only 12 bottles have been made and each comes with its own certificate and is presented in a stuffed stoat or grey squirrel. The striking packaging was created by a very talented taxidermist and all the animals used were road kill. This release is a limited run of 11 bottles, 7 stoats and 4 grey squirrels. Each ones comes with its own certificate of authenticity.

What striking package, you ask? BEHOLD:

Unfortunately, they've sold out of this beer and, therefore, its packaging, so if you were planning to drop about $650 (for a stoat) to $900 (for the grey squirrel), it looks like you're going to have to find a willing seller on eBay.
