This new beer is made using human urine

- Generally we're down with food that comes from Denmark. Not only did they give us Danishes, but also Noma, which is widely consider to be one of the world's best restaurants. But now that a Danish brewery just released 60,000 bottles of a beer they're calling "Pisner" produced from recycled human urine, we're not so sure. While the beer doesn't actually contain any human waste, the Norrebro Bryghus microbrewery used 50,000 liters of urine collected at the Roskilde Music Festival in 2015 to fertilize fields of malting barley to produce it

    Photo I recently watched a curious debate that took place in 2015 at the Free Press Society of Denmark. On one side was Geert Wilders, the far-right Dutch politician and anti-Islam campaigner whose ascendance to power was, I’m happy to say, checked by the elections in the Netherlands this month. On the other side was Flemming Rose, the journalist who angered many Muslims in 2005 by publishing cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten
