A Philadelphia brewery has decided to debut a new creation this Sunday, March 30 for a celebration which will center around The Walking Dead season finale. Dock Street Brewing Company has named their creation Walker, infused it with cranberries in order to provide a red tint and added a special ingredient. The surprise ingredient which has many people already dubbing Walker a zombie beer is, in all actuality, real brains.
The beer was created in tribute to the show The Walking Dead because Brewery Representative, Sasha Certo-Ware as well as the Head Brewer, Justin Low are both fans of the show.
The Dock Street Walker is a 7.2 percent alcohol content American pale stout. The brew is made with organic cranberries in order to create a sinister red color and provide a slight tartness but most of the other ingredients are more common. The beer is brewed with such common ingredients as malted wheat, flaked barley, and oats. Fuggle hops infuse both earthy and delicate notes but the secret ingredient is inspired by the show and zombies everywhere. The Dock Street Walker beer’s zombie inspired nature is showcased not only by the creepy reddish hue but also by the fact that it has smoked goat brains as a definitive ingredient.
