Google’s research has spread from internet searches and self-driving cars to beer, after the company teamed up with Dogifsh Head brewing company to produce a Belgian Dubbel beer called Urkontinent. The ingredients include Wattleseed from Australia, toasted amaranth from South America, green rooibos from Africa, myrica gale from Europe, and Hive Plex Honey from Google’s own California beehives (Google has beehives?). The final concoction contains more than double the alcohol content of average beer, and has a taste described as “hearty, with notes of coffee and chocolate covered cherries”.
On September 27 the beer went on tap at Dogfish’s brewpub – where it will remain until supplies are exhausted. If demand is high enough, there’s a chance that the beer could be packaged and distributed across the country.
