VB – Poland makes it literally possible


For non-Australians readers and/or non-beer drinkers, VB, or Victoria Bitter is/was one of the major brands of beer produced and sold in Australia, which its many detractors have rather rudely re-christened “Vaginal Bitter”. It was, of course, a hyperbole – until now, thanks to this innovative (I’m really not sure if it’s the right word in the context) Polish brewery:

A Polish beer made from the ‘vaginal lactic acid of hot underwear models’ has gone on sale.

The odd tipple has been launched by a Warsaw brewery named ‘The Order of Yoni’. ‘Yoni’ is the Sanskrit word for vagina.

Customers can now buy the beer and taste the ‘essence’ of the models at various pubs after it premiered on July 28 in the Polish city of Katowice.

The brewery’s website tells potential customers: ‘Imagine the woman of your dreams, your object of desire. Her charm, her sensuality, her passion. Now you can try how she tastes, feel her smell, hear her voice.


Not sure whether to laugh or to cry. But the punters are not too impressed:  “One of the first customers who tasted the beer, Grzegorz Majewski, was not impressed, complaining that at 25 zloty (£5), the beer costs the same as a normal bottle of wine. He said: ‘People will try it out of curiosity, but I don’t think it will be a regular addition on the table for beer lovers.’ “

It’s expensive, but is it safe, you ask?

Yes, of course. Firstly, during the isolation, the material is examined on presence of other bacteria and viruses. Secondly, the bacteria grows on special medium that allows only lactobacillus bacteria to grow. Thirdly, what is the most important part of the security assurance, is the examination of final multiplied lyophilized bacteria before using in preparation of starter kit. The lyophilized bacteria are examined on presence of alien DNA and / or RNA, so we are 100% sure that only lactobacillus bacteria, no other bacteria and no viruses are in final product.

The long-running slogan for the Australian VB was “For a hard earned thirst”. I’m not sure many people will ever be thirsty enough to this new Polish export.
