A Philadelphia brewery has released a new American pale stout infused with smoked goat brains in tribute to the hit US TV show, The Walking Dead.
The Dock Street Brewing Company said the goat brains, which are cooked over hot coals before being added to the beer mix, give an “intriguing, subtle smoke” flavour to the pale stout, according to a report by The Daily Mail.
The 7.2% beer, named Walker after the TV series’ zombie namesakes, will launch on 30 March to coincide with the season finale of The Walking Dead.
The beer also contains more conventional ingredients including cranberries, which were said to add a “sinister, bloody hue” and “slight tartness”, malted wheat, oats and flaked barley and fuggle hops.
The AMC show, which is set in Georgia and premiered in 2010, is reaching the end of its fourth season and was renewed for a fifth last autumn.
