Of course if you are a devil-worshipper, your job just got made a lot easier. Inspired by The Walking Dead, Philadelphia-based Dock Street Brewing Company's latest creation is a brew called Walker. And as befits a zombie drink, it's made with actual brains. Smoked goat brains, to be precise...and they added cranberries to make it a bloodier color.

So how does it taste? Well, obviously the creators are about as unbiased as a post-apocalypse governor believing his daughter can be cured of living death, but they describe it as "brewed with substantial amounts of malted wheat, oats, and flaked barley for a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Fuggle hops provide delicate, earthy notes, while the cranberries create a sinister, bloody hue, and a slight tartness. The pre-sparge-brain-addition provides this beer with intriguing, subtle smoke notes. In true walker fashion, don't be surprised if its head doesn't hang around forever."

Fuggle hops. So it truly is one Fugly beverage, eh?
