Scottish Brewery Releases 'Performance Enhancing' Ale

In light of the recent 50 Shades of Grey movie release, Scottish brewery, Innis & Gunn, has released a beer brewed with 50 different kinds of hops. Innis & Gunn claim that 50 Shades of Green will “arouse tastebuds and raise temperatures in households across the country.” As if the huge hop variety wasn’t enticing enough, Innis & Gunn added a trifecta of natural stimulants including ginseng, to boost sexual desire, ginkgo biloba, to increase blood flow and damiana, a nerve stimulant.
 
The description reads, “Frisky citrus overtones, a full body and long, lingering finish all collude to get you hot under the collar.” Although the website also claims that drinking this ale does not guarantee a strike from Cupid’s arrow, it does sound pretty tasty.

The golden ale has been brewed in super limited quantities, with only 200 bottles released. It sells for £30 for a 330ml bottle, or about $46 for a 10oz bottle. Sadly, the beer is as rare as true love and is only available in the UK.
