Japan’s Abashiri Brewery is widely popular for colourful wines including blue Ryuhyo Draft, red Hamanasu Draft, green Shiretoko Draft, and others. One among them is rainbow beer which is a bizarre beverage, served across Japan, and parts of Europe.It is brewed with water from the melted icebergs which annually float past Hokkaido’s northern beaches. Do not rely on the blue coloUr because the beverage tastes very bad. It contains extracts of several wild flowers, purple potatoes, and some other ingredients that can damage your blood circulatory system, regardless of whether the fans of this beverage believe it or not.
The kimchi soda is another weird beverage. It is always good to leave it to the Japanese because for them this drink is amazing. It is rich in wasabi, kimchi, curry and teriyaki flavors, as well as less spicy, added by flavors like bubble gum, white champagne, lychee, blueberry and banana. Trust me a plain bottle of soda would rather be wonderful than kimchi soda. This usually comes in a marble glass and served with regular lunch and dinner deals at restaurants and fast food spots across Japan and several European countries. We do not recommend you think beverage because of the dangerous techniques used in its preparation.

Now comes another weird beverage which is again popular among Japanese. Bustup drink purports to enlarge breasts without surgical methods or medicines. It is given preference as a home remedy to deal with dull, sagging and shrunken breasts caused by deficient growth, aging, menopause, and other physical complications.

The panda dung tea has made its prominent place in the hearts of tea and coffee lovers across the world.This is prepared with panda body parts. The tea is sold in a limited edition of 21 50-gram (1.7oz) packages. It is mainly exported from Hong Kong. Why we hate this beverage is because people claim that it contains animal feces, making panda poo tea both nutritious and delicious—but it can never be an alternative to widely used tea bags or coffee.
Cow water has today topped our list. The reason is its most bizarre ingredients. This has been a part of Indian culture and people name it ‘gau jal’.
