Spanish Fly Beer

Dock Street Brewing Company has released Spanish Fly, made with wormwood, yarrow and ginger harvested from the roof of the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia.

Yarrow and wormwood, used to make absinthe, contains the hallucinogenic compound thujone. There is a trace amount of thujone in absinthe, which may or may not be responsible for the notorious psychadelic effect reported from the drink, according to Wikipedia. Regardless, the TTB kept a particularly keen eye on the beer. Apparently satisfied, the beer will be released at the Four Season hotel tomorrow, and is in kegs and 12 ounce bottles.

Would someone in Philly hold a bottle for me until June?
