(NEW YORK) — A beer flavored with bull testicles started out as an April Fool’s joke for a Denver brewery and restaurant, but thanks to the popularity of the prank, the Wynkoop Brewing Company has officially announced it will be selling its Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout — in two packs, naturally — by the end of the month.
Spokesman Marty Jones tells ABC News Radio the Federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau needed to be convinced the essence of testicles shouldn’t be dropped.
“I am not sure they were aware that bull testicles are an actual food and that they are a regional delicacy out West,” he said.
For the record, the company says the brew — which will be sold to beer lovers everywhere through the site beerjobber.com — is, “a luscious, uniquely ballsy stout with notes of roasted barley, coffee and nuts.”
