8 Very Strange Beers!

  • 1. Avocado Ale by Angel City Brewery

    Avocado-ale

    Among other guacamole-inspired ingredients, this beer contains avocado and cilantro.

    While the drink was invented for the Avocado Festival, this isn’t the brewery’s first foray into experimental brews. They’ve also dabbled in au jus-inspired beer and dill pickle-flavored beer.

  • 2. Oyster Stout by 21st Amendment Brewery

    Oyster-stout

    Brewed with Hog Island Sweetwater oyster shells, this stout promises a “silky, salty finish.” Hopefully, unlike the name, you’ll never be marooned on Hog Island.

  • 3. Coconut Curry Hefeweizen by New Belgium Brewing

    Coconut-curry-beer

    Undoubtedly, there’s a lot going on in this beer — and you’ll probably still crave curry afterward.

    The beverage is flavored with coconut, cayenne, cinnamon, coriander, fenugreek seed, ginger root, kaffir and lime leaf, with a hint of banana from the hefe yeast in which it’s brewed.

  • 4. Spirulina Wit Beer by Free Tail Brewing Co.

    Spirulina-beer

    Yes, this beer is actually green, but it’s still beer. And we’re not talking Bud Light St. Patrick’s Day food-coloring green either.

    The fact that it’s brewed with blue-green algae doesn’t quite make it healthy. (Sorry.)

  • 5. Kelpie Seaweed Ale by Williams Bros Brew

    Kelpie-seaweed-ale

    Kelpie Seaweed Ale is supposed to recapture the taste of traditional beers brewed in Scottish coastal alehouses. To do so, bladderwrack seaweed is mashed in with malted and roasted barley.

  • 6. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout by Wynkoop Brewing Company

    Rocky-mt-oyster-stout-can-glass

    We’re not repeating beers. While this brew goes by the name “oyster stout,” it’s actually brewed with something stranger: bull testicles.

    Maybe just pretend you’re on an episode of Fear Factor when drinking?

  • 7. Bacon Maple Ale by Rogue Ales

    Bacon-maple-ale

    Rogue Ales collaborated with Portland fixture Voodoo Doughnuts to create this bacon maple doughnut-inspired beer, brewed from bacon and maple syrup.

  • 8. Pizza Beer by Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer

    Mamma-mia-pizza-beer

    Brewed with basil, oregano, tomato, garlic and, of course, pizza crust, this pizza-flavored beer considers itself the “World’s First Culinary Beer.”

    We consider it one step closer to Willy Wonka’s three-course meal gum becoming a reality.
