Pisner Is A Tasty New Beer Made Out Of Recycled Human Urine That Was Collected At Festivals
If you’re not drinking Pisner, the sustainable beer from Norrebro Bryghus, made from some festival-goer’s recycled piss then you might be a terrible person. That’s the bottom line here, folks.
Can I shoot you straight for a hot second? I don’t care enough about our planet to start knowing drinking something that was made with the help of someone else’s recycled piss. I barely fucking care enough to recycle bottles and cans.
But this beer isn’t what it seems.
Apparently there has been a lot of confusion about whether or not this beer is actually made from urine. “When the news that we had started brewing the Pisner came out, a lot of people thought we were filtering the urine to put it directly in the beer and we had a good laugh about that,” said Henrik Vang, Chief Executive of brewer Norrebro Bryghus.
For those of you looking forward to drinking piss beer, sadly they are not doing that. Although the beer is cheekily named “Pisner,” it doesn’t actually contain human waste. Rather, it is produced from fields of malting barley that was fertilized with human urine. So that makes it okay for you to drink it. Still not me, though.
