When beer gets weird
Beer, perhaps 10,000 years old and still among the world’s most popular drinks, has gotten weird in recent times. Eccentric craft brewers and those merely savvy about their brand marketing are adding once unthinkable — and presumed undrinkable — ingredients to their concoctions, including shellfish, beef hearts, vegetables and wild and woolly yeasts with challenging aromas. Some of these unlikely unions of fermentation and fancy are for better, some for worse. But whether the drinking experience is one for the ages or a one-night stand, the fun’s in the tasting. So here’s our tour of truly out-there ales and stouts, each peculiar in its own way.

My post is in regard to the Southern Tier Imperial Creme Brulee.... Ü
sounds good, i have made sweet chocolate coconut stout, and it is delicious. also trying to ferment some sweet cinnamon stout. the oyster is probably pretty good.
I miss beer the most, I stoppped drinking 4 yrs ago cuz of a buddy that died after 4 beers. He was riding the fog line and I was inside(traffic side) he caught some gravel or something and lost it. bounced off the cheeze grater and into on coming traffic. I stopped drinking after that, but these's beers sound like something we would have enjoyed. it was all about the different for us. makes me want to try them in the safety of my own house. RIP;;LAO
Back in the old college days when...let's face it...we all drank beer
on weekends only, I learned to write structured computer code
and occasionally, I would have a Heineken (bottle only) at the
local bar after a grueling session at the computer lab!!!
