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.
"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 in the beer and we had a good laugh about that," Henrik Vang, Chief Executive of brewer Norrebro Bryghus, told Reuters.

"If it had tasted even a bit like urine, I would put it down, but you don't even notice," Anders Sjögren, who attended Roskilde Music Festival in 2015, told Reuters.
While Denmark's Agriculture and Food Council is calling the idea "beercycling," we're still on the fence about how we feel about this. What do you think? Are you adventurous enough to drink a Pisner?
