Now this is booze straight from Mother Nature's icebox.

The Okohtsk Blue Draft Beer, which as you can see is really blue in color, is brewed from melted icebergs and seaweed. We kid you not. The makers of this brew, Abashiri, first rein in water from icebergs that float on to the beaches of a town called Hokkaido near the Sea of Okhotsk.

The bergs are then melted and brewed with blue seaweed to give it that distinctive hue and light refreshing flavor. Patrons describe the Okohtsk as being highly drinkable and refreshing--but then again, what did you expect from something that's completely nature-made?
