Bull testicle beer to be sold nationwide later this month

A Colorado brewery that created a limited-run beer flavored with bull testicles for a beer festival is making the ballsy move to offer it all year round.
Wynkoop Brewing Company’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout will now be sold nationwide in cans--available in (what else?) two-packs starting this month.
The Denver-based brewery first served the beer --originally meant as an April Fools' joke--at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver back in October. Made with 25 lbs of roasted bull gonads, the beer masters said they wanted to showcase a local delicacy --deep-fried bull testicles, also known as Rocky Mountain oysters.



People, well, went nuts for it. And soon you'll be able to try it for yourself.
Wynkoop spokesman Marty Jones told FoxNews.com the beer --which is currently available on tap at Wynkoop--will soon be available in cans in the Denver area. It will also be available through BeerJobber.com in about two weeks. The brewery hasn’t nailed down a price, but Jones said that each two-pack will probably cost about $7-$8.
The idea to actually brew the bull testicle beer wasn't too much of a stretch for Wynkoop after a spoof video promoting the fictional beer made for April Fools' Day last year became a hit among brewers and bloggers. But getting it approved by the federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau wasn't so easy. After hitting some snags, the agency recently approved the brewery’s label for the beer, which describes the brew as “a luscious, uniquely ballsy stout with notes of roasted barley, coffee and nuts.”
"Initially, they wanted us to provide some information on bull testicles as a food additive," Jones told Westword. "I am not sure they were aware that bull testicles are an actual food and that they are a regional delicacy out West."
Jones said in an interview with FoxNews.com that Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is both a delicious beverage and a way to make sure the brewery doesn’t get bogged down by taking beer too seriously.
"We like to make sure to have a lot of fun on the job,” Jones told FoxNews.com, “and this beer has brought a lot laughs."
Check out the spoof video that stared it all.

Would the non-alcoholic version be called CowTit beer?

You have to have some serious Balls to start a brewery like that.

IDK, there's just something about the way that Wynkoop rep. is cupping those cow balls in front of those brewing vats that makes me say, "No thank-you", ... that and the fact he looks a little like Chris Elliot which also makes me wonder if it's a joke?
