AKRON, Ohio - If the ancient Mayan calendar is true, the world will end this Friday. The folks at Thirsty Dog Brewing Company in Akron came up with a beer in honor of the occasion.
"Mayan Last Dog" is a chocolate stout made with Maya spices including chocolate nibs and honey. John Najeway, owner of Thirsty Dog Brewing Company, said they made a limited amount of the beer that went on sale last week.
The end-of-the-world beer is sold as a four-pack of bottles in some stores or on draft at the brewery's tasting room on Grant Street in Akron.
Najeway said he has a great response to the beer.
"If we get through the end of the world, I think we will have the rise of the Mayans and continue to brew this beer," said Najeway.
