"This 55% beer should be drank in small servings whilst exuding an endearing pseudo vigilance and reverence for Mr Stoat."
That's great, but £500's far outside anything I can afford — and besides, they only made twelve bottles, which sold out within hours.
The solution: The End of History: On a Budget.
Start with one very cheap stuffed teddy bear and a can of Sainsbury's Value Lager.
This particular can of lager, by the way, was a bargain: reduced from 49p to 48p. Not only that, but it's suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. None of that meaty beer around these parts, thank you very much.
This is where anyone who watched any of the Toy Story movies recently should look away.
The patient was incredibly co-operative. By the way, if you've started to wince at this, don't worry: in a previous life, the bear was actually Hitler.
Then it was a simple matter of inserting the lager. This taxidermy lark's easy.
A bit of duct tape to cover the joins. You can bearly see it. (Ha. Bearly. Oh, never mind.)
And presto! You can hardly tell the difference between this and the proper End of History. I'd recommend that this sell for no more than £4.99 or so.
I've posted it to Brewdog. I'll let you know what they think.
