Ask someone to name the worst thing about a music festival and they'll say it was the toilets.
After all, the portaloos are bad at the start and turn into basically a wasteland come the end of the festival.
But Danish brewery Norrebro Bryghus has decided to turn that experience into liquid gold by using 50,000 litres of urine from a music festival and making a new beer with it. Yes, really.
Oh, and they've called it Pisner.
"When the news that we had started brewing the Pisner came out, a lot of people thought we were filtering the urine to put it directly into the beer and we had a good laugh about that," chief executive Henrik Vang told Reuters.
Fortunately, what they've actually done is make the beer from fields of malting barley fertilised with human urine collected from Roskilde music festival in 2015, so absolutely no human waste is in the beer.
And, apparently, you wouldn't be able to tell its unique origins.
"If it had tasted even a bit like urine, I would put it down, but you don't even notice," explained Anders Sjögren, who attended Roskilde in 2015 and therefore probably contributed some of his wee to the process.
The 50,000 litres of human urine from the festival has resulted in enough malting barley for around 60,000 bottles of the beer.
So, Pisner all round?
