MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
Robe Town Brewery is introducing a limited run of beer flavored with Ambergris, which is a rare and expensive sperm whale vomit.
- It’s from a different company than the one presenting belly button beer, but it is for the same festival.
- Ambergris is said to smell like marine fecal matter
- According to the brewery’s website, “The result is a pungent, animalistic aroma, musky ethereal perfume”
- It’s said that in taste, the beer is full bodied with caramel malt and fruity flavors to balance the bitterness
- Called Moby Dick Ambergris Ale, they only had enough to make five 50 liter kegs and a few bottles to sell
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
