While the thought of a few beers after work is enough to pep me up almost instantly, I have never thought of the sweet, sweet nectar as an aphrodisiac... Until now!
A Scottish brewery is riding on the coattails of [Fifty Shades of Grey](movie:391697) and has whipped up a beer that doubles as a kinky aphrodisiac, although wine connoisseur Christian Grey would certainly disapprove of such an uncouth idea!
The Innis & Gunn made brew named 'Fifty Shades of Green' would certainly appeal to the millionaire businessman with its hefty price tag of $46 a bottle though.
But, what do you get for shelling out for this alcoholic aphrodisiac? According to the makers, this isn't just a regular beverage and you should probably slurp it in the privacy of you own home to avoid any ermmm “performance-enhancing” embarrassment.
The beer is fortified with ginseng to boosts the sex drive, ginkgo biloba to get blood pumping to unmentionable regions, and damiana, a mild nerve stimulant, to help it pack an erotic punch.
According to Innis & Gunn, even making the beer was an exciting, experimental affair. They wrote on their website that:
We had a lot of fun making this beer, doing things that have never been done before in brewing, much like couples will be doing behind closed doors once they’ve seen the film.
