"The End of History"

MSNBC says: You'd expect a lot from a bottle of beer costing $765. 

What you get is 55 percent alcohol — and served in a squirrel.

According to Scottish firm BrewDog, "The End of History" is the 

"strongest, most expensive and most shocking beer in the world." Just

 12 bottles were made and the company has already sold out. They

 will be shipped out to buyers in the United States, Canada, Italy

, Denmark, Scotland and England next week. The dead animals which

 were used to create the beers' unusual appearance were four

 squirrels, seven weasels and a hare. All were roadkill, James Watt,

 co-founder of BrewDog, told The name of the blond 

Belgian ale is taken from the title of a book by philosopher Francis

 Fukuyama, "The End of History and the Last Man" which the

 company said had been chosen to imply "this is to beer what

 democracy is to history." Watt said the beer should be treated with

 care when drinking. "It tastes more like a whisky and you have got
 to handle it in that way as opposed to the way you would handle a

 normal beer," he told
