A pack of smogs worth of nicotine in every beer?!
New Zealand's source for oddstuff - strange, weird & bizarre news on Stuff.co.nz: New German beer may satisfy drinkers and smokers
: "Smoking pub patrons looking for their nicotine fix may soon get it from their next glass of beer, not a cigarette.
A new beer has been launched in Germany which contains nicotine and 6.3 per cent alcohol.
Alcohol Healthwatch in New Zealand said drinking three 250ml cans was the equivalent of smoking three packets of cigarettes.
Alcohol Healthwatch director Rebecca Williams said the new beer was seen overseas as a way of getting around smoking bans in public places."
