Beer can be delicious, especially when it's brewed by the most skilled of craft brewers—but, while making this beer certainly would take a sort of skill, it doesn't quite sound delicious: Apparently, Philadelphia's Dock Street Brewery is concocting a beer inspired by The Walking Dead that contains...wait for it...real, smoked goat brains.
That is not a typo.
While this sounds like a plot detail from American Horror Story: Freak Show, it's very real:
Dock Street Walker (7.2% ABV) is an American Pale Stout, brewed with substantial amounts of malted wheat, oats, and flaked barley for a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Fuggle hops provide delicate, earthy notes, while the cranberries create a sinister, bloody hue, and a slight tartness. The pre-sparge-brain-addition provides the beer with intriguing, subtle smoke notes. In true walker fashion, don’t be surprised if its head doesn’t hang around forever.
There are plenty of things wrong here, but if you relish drinking brains, this is for you. To be fair, as Dock Street Brewery continues to point out, brain is actually considered a delicacy in some parts of the world, not just by zombies.
