This Zombie-Themed Beer is Actually Made From Brains

By: Lawrence Bonk

It wasn't so long ago that zombie-fever was more a mild zombie-cough. Sure, zombie movies came out every now and then, but that was about it. Nowadays, however, the undead are more popular than vampires, pirates and ninjas combined. Case in point, here is a zombie-themed beer actually made from, ugh, brains.

Introducing Dock Street Brewing Company's Walker beer. Don't worry. The brewers didn't raid the local morgue and throw a few human specimen in a Vitamix blender. It's actually made from goat brains, which is still pretty gross and, depending on the lore, would still make a great beverage to an actual zombie. The brains are smoked, if that makes any difference to your gag reflex.

As of next week, it will be available in Philadelphia at Dock Street Brewing Company, either by the pint in the bar or by the growler if you want to imbibe in the comfort of your own panic room.
