First up, CBS announced that are releasing a new line of Star Trek-inspired, canned beer called Klingon Warnog making it the first official line of Star Trek approved beer (we’re hoping this means that there’s an official line of William Shatner toupees coming out soon as well). The brew from Tin Man Brewing Company of Evansville, Indiana is based on a fictional drink from the TV series. It’s a popular ale drunk by the Klingons usually when they need a pick-me-up after a long, hard day of unnecessary warring and spraying your enemies with the fear of your mighty musk.
Next over in Philadelphia, the Dock Street Brewing Company announced the release of the first official beer for zombies or just people who dare to eat like one. It’s called Dock Street Walker, the name for the zombies on AMC’s The Walking Dead, and it’s made with a very special ingredient: brains. That’s not a euphemism or a reference to gelatin shaped brains. We mean that when you read the ingredients on the bottle, it will have the friggin’ word “brains” printed on it. The brains come from goats and they are paired with malted wheat, oats, flaked barley and fuggle hops to create an American style pale stout. They also threw some cranberries into the mix to give it a nice, blood red look because using actual blood would go too far.
Look for both in the “Hey, dude, I dare you to drink that” aisle of your local grocery or beer store next to the Sriarcha wide-mouth bottles and Keystone Light.
