Olympics-Inspired Beer Adds in 'Performance-Enhancing Additives'
Olympics mania is just about to start peaking, so this cold brew might be just the perfect antidote for all the body envy you will soon experience.
Brewdog, the company behind the Viagra-laced "Royal Virility Performance" beer circa the Royal Wedding, has now released a special-edition brew called "Never Mind the Anabolics," a 6.5 percent India Pale Ale. Oh, and it's also laced with "performance-enhancing additives" banned for pro athletes. Sorry Olympians!
The brew is apparently infused with creatine, guarana, ginseng, gingo, maca powder, matcha tea, and kola nut. While creatine supplements are used for athletic aid, ginseng, matcha, and the others are commonly viewed as superfoods or used in energy drinks... so it's not that bad. In fact, it's even (supposedly) legal.
"Why waste time training hard? This little beauty does the hard work for you. Guaranteed to boost your sporting ability in an almost completely legal way," the website says. Unfortunately, Brewdog is U.K.-based and it probably doesn't ship internationally, but if you're in the area for the games, an 11-ounce bottle will set you back roughly $8.
