Brewer Makes 'Walking Dead' Themed Beer with Real Brains

Dock Street Brewing Co., in Pennsylvania, is introducing a a new Zombie-themed ale, called Dock Street Walker, in honor of AMC's "The Walking Dead" finale, airing this Sunday.

Following in the footsteps of Brewery Ommegang (Game of Thrones’ Fire & Blood Red Ale) and Marble Brewery (Breaking Bad’s Heisenberg’s Dark Indian Black Ale and Walt’s White Lie Indian White Ale), Dock Street Brewing Company has created the "Dock Street Walker": a 7.2 percent ABV American pale stout, brewed with wheat, oats, flaked barley, organic cranberry, and (of course) Smoked Goat Brains!.

Dock Street used smoked goat brains to give the ale a subtle smoky flavor. Fuggle hops provide delicate, earthy notes, but what we love the most is the use of the cranberries to add a slight tartness and create a sinister, bloody hue.

If only they had a mass market for this so that all us "out of towners" could give it a try.

Are you adventurous enough to give it a try?
