These are the facts: Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City makes a beer called  Mangalitsa Pig Porter that's brewed using real pig parts - like pig heads, snouts and eyeballs.

And chocolate.

It's like a 4-H project that went wildly out of control. According to, the beer is only available in the spring and summer. And before you turn your nose up at it, Mangalitsa Pig Porter won a gold medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival. So, put that on the list for this summer.

Here's the story.
