Beer lovers get ready! In a new article, we talk about the 12 strangest types of beer. Believe me, you have not even heard of such.
Beer is a very ancient drink that has been brewed and brewed since ancient times. The first mentions of beer were in ancient China, Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt. And today, there are so many varieties of beer that the eyes run wild in the store. At the same time, there are incredible and even unique varieties of beer. Let’s talk about them.
1. Oyster stout
Beer? From oysters? What kind of attack is this? But it is actually brewed in many places around the world. The most saturated varieties with a creamy taste are produced only with oyster shells, which are added to the wort. But some types of beer are made with the addition of a whole mollusk.
2. Fortified beer of the Brewmaster brewery, Snake Venom
It is a super strong beer that contains 67.5% alcohol by volume, which makes it stronger than most whiskeys, as well as vodka. Beer is made from pure ethanol, as well as beer that is brewed from water, barley, hops and yeast. This is a drink for those with good health and liver.
3. Ghost Face Killa, Twisted Pine Brewery
This beer is very bitter but spicy at the same time. Six different types of chili peppers are used to cook it, including ghost peppers. That is why beer is so spicy that only lovers of spicy and spicy dishes can drink it.
4. Saturday Morning, brewery Smartmouth
On the contrary, this beer is sweet, like baby porridge. In the US, the taste of this beer is called nostalgic, and it is produced with several pounds of marshmallows added to each brewed batch. This is strange, because who would want to drink beer with the taste of marshmallows?
5. Flemish red ale
This is a very interesting type of beer with a strange taste. When you first take a sip of this beer, it seems that it is spoiled. But at the same time, if you get used to the taste, you will definitely like it, because it tastes more like wine than beer.
6. Aries, броварня Steðji
This Icelandic beer is not very strong, but it is brewed with interesting ingredients. The beginning of the recipe seems normal — water, grain, hops, yeast. But then you look at the warehouse and get a little gray, because this beer is also made from ram’s testicles, which are smoked on a fire made of sheep dung. Wonder.
7. Whale beer, Steðji Brewery
And again the indomitable Icelandic brewery Steðji with its beer experiments. They made whale beer. Lamb testicles have already been dispensed with here. It was time for whale testicles, which were smoked over sheep manure. Such an egg is added to each batch.
8. Utopias, Boston Beer Company
This is a strong beer that is brewed and aged according to old recipes, so it gets all its taste and aroma thanks to classic ingredients and time spent. And its bottle looks very nice.
9. Birra Etrusca Bronze, Dogfish Head Brewery
This beer is brewed according to ancient recipes and inspired by ancient drinking vessels found in ancient Etruscan tombs. And it is flavored with ingredients that were available to ancient brewers: pomegranate, honey, Ethiopian myrrh resin. The taste and aroma of this beer is very exotic.
10. Lambic, Lindemans brewery
This beer, with its strong foam, is unlike any other you’ve ever tasted. It is produced in only one place in the world — in the Belgian Pajottenland valley. There are dozens of strains of natural yeast floating in the air, so they lead to the spontaneous fermentation of beer, which occurs when the windows of the brewery are open. It is spicy with a complex taste, and if it is made with fruit, it is also fantastically sweet.
11. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout, Wynkoop Brewery
Okay, that’s a tricky local pun, but Icelanders aren’t the only ones on this list who make beer with testicles from various animals. Rocky Mountain oysters are boiled bull testicles. And this type of beer is made with their addition to the mixture. Fried testicles add a unique smoky taste to beer. Would you try such a beer?
12. Shaved Black Truffle Pilsner, Moody Tongue Brewery
This beer is more expensive — 120 bucks per bottle! And no wonder, because it is made from truffles, as you can understand from the name. Probably delicious.
