Royal wedding beer, laced with Viagra

BrewDog's beer will likely feature an herbal version of the prescription drug.

What aphrodisiacs might Prince William and Kate Middleton indulge in on their wedding night? Well, BrewDog Brewery, the brash beer makers behind the infamous 32% ABV (alcohol by volume) Tactical Nuclear Penguin, has a suggestion: Royal Virility Performance, their new Viagra-laced India pale ale designed in honor of the Royal Wedding.

Is that even legal? Maybe! “The original batch of 40 was made with real Viagra -- although we're still unsure as to whether we'll be able to sell these,” said BrewDog’s PR rep Alex Meyers. “If we can use real Viagra, we will. That was the original idea.”

Just in case Viagra turns out to be verboten, the brewery will make the rest of the beer with “herbal Viagra, Horny Goat Weed, Ginseng and a healthy dose of Scottish sarcasm.” The brewery, based in Fraserburgh, Scotland, originally planned to make only 40 bottles of Royal Virility Performance, but then decided on selling 1,000 more through its website brewdog.com. The response has been so enthusiastic, however, that they might brew even more, especially since 924 of the 1,000 bottles have already been preordered.

Each 330ml bottle costs £10 ($16), with 20 percent of all proceeds going to Centrepoint, a charity supported by Prince William that fights homelessness among young people. So, will the royal couple ever get a chance to sample this creation? Managing director James Watt claims on his website: “We put a bottle in a jiffy bag marked ‘Prince Willy, Buckingham Palace’ [sic]. We sent it by Royal Mail as we presume they are most likely to know where he lives.” I’m guessing that means no.
