The new beer, NicoShot, is being tested in Germany and may be approved in the next few months.
With three milligrams of nicotine per serving, NicoShot is being targeted at smokers who are no longer allowed to smoke in pubs. In theory the beer will be like the nicotine patch because, the use of NicoShot can be reduced, then ceased.

A German company has come up with a novel way of beating bans on smoking in pubs - put the nicotine in the beer.

A new beer, known as NicoShot, is undergoing testing in Germany with hopes it can be moved toward approval in the next few months.

Each beer contains three milligrams of nicotine and a 6.3% alcohol reading.

Its German maker, Nautilus, claims the beer is designed to help smokers quit the habit rather than make the drink addictive.

Nautilus, who makes the beer, claims it is designed to help smokers and not make the drink addictive.
I have my doubts on this. Much like the recent fad of Caffeinated Beer, you really have to question why there is an addictive chemical in my drink.

What's next? Will Coca-cola start having a NicoCoke, to 'help' smokers?

In places like Australia, products like these are already banned.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand has addressed the issue of added nicotine to products.
"People overseas were adding nicotine to other things such as mineral water, so we thought we'd be absolutely cautious because while the Food Standards code didn't actually say you could add nicotine, it didn't actually say you couldn't."

I do not buy it for one minute. It is all part of a conspiracy between the Beer industry and tobacco industry to keep people hooked on nicotine.
