Dahl working in his shed at the bottom of his garden home in BuckinghamshireEine Brauerei in London hat Bakterien aus Autor Roald Dahls (James und der Riesenpfirsich, Charlie und die Schokoladenfabrik, Hexen Hexen) Spezialschriftstellersessel gesammelt und braut damit nun ein Spezialschriftstellerbier. Mit anderen Worten: Die machen ein Grätzer-Weizenbier aus Roald Dahls Arschwasser. Yummy!

Mr. Twit's Odious Ale has been brewed utilising yeast swabbed from the wood of Roald Dahl's famous writing chair; a specially-adapted armchair created to ease the pain of a back injury sustained during WWII, as the author avoided writing at a desk. With the permission of Dahl's estate, brewers took a swab from the chair itself, which will be used to culture all the yeast needed for the beer.

The Odious Ale is concocted by microdistillery 40FT Brewery and food designers Bompass & Parr. "We've been lifelong fans of Roald Dahl and so it's an honour to be collaborating with our friends Bompas & Parr to create this beer together," said Steve Ryan of 40FT Brewery.

Londonist: „The brew — a 'grätzen', which is highly carbonated and described as 'Polish champagne' — debuts at a Twits-inspired dinner party in Waterloo Vaults next month, featuring bird pie, 'potentially perilous' pudding and heaps of Dahl-like lunacy.“
