“Beercycling”: Roskilde Festival-goers in Denmark are being asked to Donate their Urine which will be used to Help make Beer for the 2017 Event Check out “Roskilde”, Europe’s largest music festival, held in Zealand, Denmark… Scroll down to read more!

Check out “Roskilde”, Europe’s largest music festival, held in Zealand, Denmark and which is going on now with performers which include Florence and the Machine, Sir Paul McCartney and Pharrell Williams.

Only this year festival-goers are being asked to donate their urine to help make beer (yes, you read that right…).  

The project, officially called “From Piss to Pilsner”, hopes to “re-purpose” up to 25,000 litres of urine – which is hoped to be stored and then taken to nearby fields where it will be used to fertilize barley – from 100,000 people at the festival to help create 425 kegs of beer.  Believe it or not, “beercycling” (as it has reportedly been formally dubbed), is a joint initiative between the Danish Agriculture and Food Council (DAFC) and the festival’s organizers.  Men are actually asked to urinate into a metal trough with a sign reading: “Don’t waste your piss. Danish farmers can turn it into beer again.”  It is actually hoped that by 2017, guests at the Roskilde Festival will be served beer that has been fertilised by their own urine this year.

Per Marie Grabow Westergaard, who is reportedly with the DAFC: “We’ve got urinals right next to the stages where the acts will play, so we’re hoping to collect some rock star pee as well.”  Per Leif Nielsen, Head of Communications for the DAFC, this “initiative” is also intended to have a positive effect on the local environment as: “Beercycling is about changing our approach to waste, from being a burden to being a valuable resource.  Today, the huge amount of urine produced at the festival is having a negative impact on the environment and the sewage system and treatment plant in Roskilde.  Beercycling will turn those many litres of urine into a resource.” All that I can say about this story is that it brings a whole new meaning to the never happily used expression that “this beer tastes like piss”.

Those crazy Danes…

And to think, there is actually a “Crazy Dane” beer already

… oh the irony

Per “Curious Minds” (you can link to their video on the subject here), the amount of water on Earth has remained roughly the same for millions of years, meaning it’s likely we have all drunk dinosaur pee.

Around 121,000 cubic miles (or 500,000 cubic kilometres for you “metric” sorts) of water falls on the Earth in the form of precipitation every year, meaning this water has moved around the planet.  Per the video (again, whcih you can view here): “This means that in every glass of water you drink, there is a lot of water which has already passed through a dinosaur and come out the other end.”  Maybe the Danes are not as crazy as previously thought….
