(NEW YORK) — If you’re worried the world is going to come to an end this Friday, you probably could use a drink. And what could be better than a nice cold one brewed just for the occasion.
Brewers at The Thirsty Dog Brewing Company in Akron, Ohio, have created a beer to commemorate the end of the ancient Mayan calendar: the Mayan Last Dog.
John Najeway, the co-owner of the company, tells ABC News affiliate WEWS-TV the beer is made with Mayan cocoa nibs and honey.
“It’s almost an imperial stout … as the beer warm up it has a nice chocolatey flavor to it. Then you can taste the sweetness of the honey,” he explains.
While Thirsty Dog only brewed a limited amount of the beer, Najeway says the company has enough to get us to the end of time and hopefully beyond.
“Actually, I think if we get through the end of the world, I think we will have the rise of the Mayans and continue to brew this beer,” he says.
