Instead of beer and peanuts, why not beer and brains?

In honor of the season finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead on March 30, Philadelphia’s Dock Street Brewing Company will be releasing a beer made with a ton of special ingredients -- including smoked goat brains.

Besides the brains, Dock Street Walker is made with malted wheat, oats, flaked barley and cranberry.

The brewers were unsure about what to include in the beer, but said “Screw it, let’s use brains.”

“The pre-sparge-brain-addition provides this beer with intriguing, subtle smoke notes,” Dock Street said in a press release. “In true walker fashion, don’t be surprised if its head doesn’t hang around forever.”

Dock Street Walker is an American Pale Stout and it is advertised as “quite possibly the smartest beer you’ll ever drink.”
