Mmm….beer. This wonderful concoction that is traditionally made from only four ingredients barley, hops, water and yeast is one of if not the oldest alcoholic beverage ever. In fact it is so old that no one knows for sure how old it really is. One thing’s for sure though there is no other alcoholic beverage that even comes close to competing with the popularity of beer. Now unfortunately for most Americans there is only one type of beer and that is the fizzy yellow light beers that were made popular back in the 70’s and early 80’s. Think Miller Lite, Bud Light and Coors Light. And if you didn’t notice I did say unfortunately and the reason for this is because there are so many wonderful beers out there that I know people would love. But trying to get light beer drones to drink anything else is like pulling teeth. Typically I would apologize for being so blunt but the truth hurts and this topic is somewhat of a passion for me. Besides how many people eat the exact same thing for breakfast every single day or any meal for that matter?
Anyways, enough about the drones lets get back to what is really important, the beer. Now, as I was saying before most beer is made of the four basic ingredients mentioned above but through the years some people have decided that this just wasn’t enough. So they started adding things to their beer, a little fruit, herbs maybe some spices which is all nice in moderation. But then there is the occasional beer made that really makes people think you have got to be joking. And that is what we have listed here. So for those of you that are a little more adventurous here are five of the all time weirdest beers ever concocted.
5) 3 Busy Dogs Bowser Beer
4) Crazy Ed’s Cave Creek Chili beer
This beer is definitely a little weird and you will either love it or hate it with an average of about 8 out of 10 hating it. The base beer is very comparable to a typical light beer as far as quality goes but the kicker is the hot Serrano chili pepper that is in every bottle. So it as you can imagine the beer basically tastes like liquid chili pepper, yum.
3) Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch Golden Elixir
2) BrewDog’s Royal Virility Performance
This gimmick IPA was produced in honor of the recent royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton though it is intended to be drank more for the wedding night. The reason for this is the fact that it contains several well known aphrodisiacs “including herbal Viagra, chocolate and horny goat weed”. And apparently three of these bad boys are supposed to be the equivalent to one Viagra pill. The brewers even went as far as to put “Arise Prince Willy” on the label.
And the number one weirdest beer is…
1) BrewDog’s The End of History
So there you have five of the all time weirdest beers ever. I hope all you beer enthusiasts have enjoyed the read and are looking forward to trying some of the crazy beers mentioned above, if you can get them. And for those that think that fizzy yellow beer is the only beer I hope this has inspired you to jump from your drone ship. Happy drinking!
