Every so often someone has an idea for a beverage that is so horrible it circles right back around to being brilliant. First there was Malört. Now there is a Walking Dead-theme beer made from actual brains.
According to Gizmodo, Dock Street Brewing Co.’s new beer, Dock Street Walker, does not contain human brains because that would be extraordinarily illegal. It does, however, contain actual brain parts, because the beer is an American Pale Stout brewed with smoked goat brains.
Head brewer Justin Low also threw some organic cranberries in there, so the beer will be nice and red for optimal creepiness.
“Fuggle hops provide delicate, earthy notes, while the cranberries create a sinister, bloody hue, and a slight tartness,” Dock Street said in a press release. “The pre-sparge-brain-addition provides this beer with intriguing, subtle smoke notes. In true walker fashion, don’t be surprised if its head doesn’t hang around forever.”
Whether or not anyone will want to drink the terrifying brew remains to be seen, but the beer debuts on March 30, which is the same day as the Walking Dead season finale.
