‘Never Mind the Anabolics’ is Booze on Steroids

Never Mind the Anabolics

I have a feeling that beer pumped with all sorts of stimulants probably isn’t legal, but that doesn’t make it any less amazing. BrewDog came up with this steroid-laced concoction as a form of protest against the London Olympics’ strict sponsorship rules that kept a lot of brands out.

Dubbed as ‘Never Mind the Anabolics’, the ingredients list for this limited-edition India pale ale includes ‘creatine, guarana, lycii berries, kola nut, Gingko, matcha tea, maca powder and steroids.’ The brew was specially formulated to ‘unmask the corporate beast of the world’s biggest sporting event and highlight the shallow nature of sponsorship.’

An inside source explains that only the first batch of beer actually contained steroids. The bottles that will be made available to the public won’t contain steroids, but they’ll still be pumped with other substances that Olympics athletes are banned from consuming.

Dubbed as the London Booster, this bad baby will be displayed outside the Czech Olympic headquarters in London to inspire the Czech athletes to bring home the gold. Go team!
