In celebration of the of the Season 4 finale of The Walking Dead, Philadelphia's Dock Street Brewing Company just announced they will be making and releasing Dock Street Walker, a 7.2% American Pale Stout brewed with actual brains… goat brains to be exact.
To give the beer a subtle smoky flavor, Dock Street chose smoked goat brains (which from a zombie's perspective probably aren't as tasty as human ones, but walkers can't be choosers). Cranberries were also added to the mix to provide a little bit of tartness and give the beer a bloody red hue.
The idea for the beer came from Dock Street’s head brewer Justin Low and brewery rep Sasha Certo-Ware, who are obviously huge fans of AMC’s zombie series. Here's a statement they released:
“More often than not, monotonous Monday cleaning rituals (labors of love for brewers everywhere) were spent recapping the previous night’s twists, turns, narrow escapes, or untimely goodbyes. Dock Street wanted to brew a special tribute to the show."
The big question here is… would you drink a beer brewed with real braaaains?
