Beer and Brains

We all know that drinking beer makes you smarter, but I don't think this is exactly what the researchers had in mind. (I know, bad pun.) Dock Street Brewing in Philadelphia is brewing a special beer for fans of the Walking Dead television series. Dock Street Walker is brewed with wheat, oats, flaked barley, cranberry, and smoked goat brains. The brewer's claim is that the pre-sparge addition of the brains adds "intriguing, subtle smoke notes."

I consider myself an adventurous eater, and drinker, and definitely a smoked beer fan, and I really can't say I wouldn't try this beer. It's definitely more appealing than some ingredient options reported in a previous post.


  1. For all we know, this could be how TEOTWAWKI starts, heck... It could be the entire premise for the Walking Dead.

    What’s wrong with adding the brew to a charred bourbon cask or perhaps boiling the wort with a peat fire?

    I do like the specialty brew at least conceptually, but I think to be safe we’re going to need some volunteers to drink it, and we’re going to need to be sure they don’t turn...

    1. I'm willing to help out with with either task. :-) Though admittedly I've never seen the TV show, nor do I plan to.

  2. Huh. Smoked, I like. Using goat brains in my beer....ummmmm....not keen on the idea.
