A Philadelphia Brewery is rolling out a new beer inspired by The Walking Dead this weekend, just in time for the Season 4 finale.
Philadlephia’s Dock Street Brewery has commented that the new beer contains brains. Real brains. Not human brains, but smoked goat brains.
Here is what they had to say:
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. […]
Gourmet mushrooms and potentially hallucinogenic herbs are one thing … but smoked brains? Believe it or not, much of the world considered brain to be a true delicacy Think Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but not ridiculous. Many also believe that using every part of the animal not only increases and encourages sustainability, but also honors the animal’s life and death. [Dock Street Brewery]
I guess, if you are a hardcore Walking Dead fan, than you can enjoy the sweet/bitter taste of goat brains? They believe by using more parts of an animal you are giving more honor to the animal’s life and death.
If we can, we will get our hands on a six-pack of the beer and tell you what we think! Stay tuned!

But anyway, more importantly, the newest member of the UPROXX team, Stacey Ritzen, lives just a few blocks away from Dock Street Brewery, and we’re all currently trying to peer pressure her into trying this beer. Expect a full report.
