A recent mistake forces a North Dakota brewery to discontinue serving some of their beers.
Ashes 2 Ashes Brewing in North Dakota was recently forced to discontinued their offer to brew a beer containing a loved one's ashes. The original offer involved brewing and packaging a beer containing the cremated remains of your love one. The beer was never intended to be consumed and was tastefully labeled with pictures of the deceased on each bottle. The beer, loving called "Bière de Grave", a play on the popular beer style bière de garde, was actually gaining popularity in the craft beer community.
An unidentified spokesman for the company said that they had brewed more than forty of these beers in the last calendar year. The service which cost around a thousand dollars is not covered by traditional insurance and takes about six months to complete.
The discontinuation of the offer was made after a small mix up at the brewery caused one of the tribute beers to be served to the public while an unfortunate family received a pale ale.
Ashes 2 Ashes Brewing Co did not respond to any of our request for information.
