This is no joke, a Japanese brewery has created a beer that is made with coffee beans that have been harvested from elephant dung.

I should also say that they use these beans to make coffee, but someone had the bright idea to make beer out of it!  Not only did they brew this special beer using the special coffee beans, it sold out in minutes of going on sale.

The beer is made by the Sankt Gallen Brewery and is called, Un Kono Kuro.  The beer is described as a 'chocolate stout' even though there is no chocolate in it.
