You Can’t Call Yourself a Beer Connoisseur if You’ve Never Tried These Flavors
Beer aka one of the best beverages on the entire planet. It’s just so versatile. You can have it with dinner, at a football game, on the beach — it’s all-around a crowd favorite drink. We all have our specific go to’s: whether it’s a 30 pack of Coors when cheering on your team at touchdown for a tailgate or a six-pack of craft to have for a night in with friends, we all have our trusty brands and flavors.
While perusing the dark beer interwebs, we found some the strangest yet appealing beer flavors that you didn’t know existed!
Bring on the beer!
1. Avocado Ale
Avocado is all the rage; it’s one of the highest hyped superfoods for every health nut out there. It’s on toast, in smoothies, and now you can get it in beer! Angel City Brewery released their first brew of Avocado Ale at the Los Angeles Avocado Fest in 2016, a blend of avocados, avocado honey, lime juice, onion powder, and cilantro. The guacamole-esque combination gives the beer a unique creamy texture you won’t get with any regular beer on the market!
2. S’more Porter
Combining everyone’s favorite campfire snack and beer, Saranac combines the tastes of chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker with their caramel biscuit, brown and roasted malts. The S’more Porter fuses childhood camping dessert vibes into your favorite adult beverage.
3. Sriracha Hot Stout
Do you love Sriracha on your food? How about in your beer? Now you can have your favorite Asian inspired hot sauce in brew form. Get the nice kick in the back of your throat with each sip!
4. Peanut Butter Milk Stout
Imagine your favorite peanut butter and chocolate treat, but alcoholic. That’s what the Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout is for ya. Users on the beer reviewing website Beeradvocate have said it’s like, “a sandwich and dessert, washed down with milk.”
5. Dogfish Head’s Wine Flavored Beers
We all know the margarita flavored beers, and the iced tea flavored beers, but have you ever had a wine flavored beer? Not to quote Hannah Montana or anything, but you get the best of both worlds! Dogfish Head’s four wine inspired brews include Midas Touch, Red & White, Noble Rot, and Sixty-One.
6. Candy Flavored Beer
Forget about being a kid in a candy store; it’s now appropriate to be an adult in a (beer) candy store! Candy Sours Willy Wonka-ifys beer to add some of your favorite sour candy flavors.
7. Carolina Reaper Beer
Probably not for the faint of heart— or heat. The Carolina Reaper has certified as the hottest pepper in the world by Guinness World Records, and it has been transformed into beer with a hint of peach. Flying Dog Brewery tops their heat series of spicy beers with the Carolina Reaper Peach IPA. Unfortunately for those who love the heat this beer isn’t being brewed at the moment. But keep an eye out on the Flying Dog Brewery site to see if it ever makes a comeback!
8. Oyster Stout
Not only does Flying Dog brew with the hottest pepper in the world, but they also brew seafood beer. They flavor their Pearl Necklace Chesapeake Stout with real oysters straight from the Rappahannock River. Make date night a little more romantic with a bottled aphrodisiac.
9. CBD Beer
General Washington’s Secret Stash IPA is the first CBD beer of its kind. It really isn’t a flavor of the beer, but with more and more states legalizing marijuana, it still seems fitting for a list of strange beers.
10. Maple Bacon Coffee Porter
Maple bacon and coffee, what could sound better than that? Oh right— BEER! Funky Buddha’s Maple Bacon Coffee Porter won the 2016 World Beer Cup Gold Medal in 2016. It has since become so sought after that they only released once a year for festivals. Be on the lookout on their website for the next time this breakfast brew hits the stands!
