This beer is brewed with whale fossils

Pizza beer and peanut butter cup beer are nowhere near as wild as one of the latest concoctions. Bone Dusters, a new amber ale created in Ashburn, Virginia, is made with 35-million-year-old fossilized whale bones—or at least yeast that was swiped from them.

Those excited about the peculiar brew will be able to taste the ale soon in bars across Washington, D.C., the Washington Business Journal reports.
