Dock Street to release Walking Dead-inspired beer made with brains, Walker, on 3/30

dock street walker labelPress Release: 

(Philadelphia, PA) – Only two things in life are certain: Craft Beer and Zombies. Kind of. As avid enthusiasts of both, Dock Street Brewery combined an obsessive passion for brewing with our admiration for the finest zombie drama to date. Behold our liquid tribute, Dock Street Walker, an American Pale Stout brewed with wheat, oats, flaked barley, organic cranberry, and Smoked Goat Brains!

Dock Street Walker is the brainchild (pun intended) of Head Brewer Justin Low and Brewery Representative Sasha Certo-Ware, both loyal fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead. More often than not, monotonous Monday cleaning rituals (labors of love for brewers everywhere) were spent recapping the previous night’s twists, turns, narrow escapes, or untimely goodbyes. Dock Street wanted to brew a special tribute to the show. “Screw it, let’s use brains!”

Dock Street Walker (7.2% ABV) is an American Pale Stout, brewed with substantial amounts of malted wheat, oats, and flaked barley for a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Fuggle hops provide delicate, earthy notes, while the cranberries create a sinister, bloody hue, and a slight tartness. The pre-sparge-brain-addition provides this beer with intriguing, subtle smoke notes. In true walker fashion, don’t be surprised if its head doesn’t hang around forever.

While Dock Street has earned local, national, and international praise for many of its traditional styles like Rye IPA, Royal Bohemian Pilsner, and Amber Ale, making waves is familiar ground to Philadelphia’s first microbrewery. The growing portfolio of Reinheitsgebot-taunting brews includes Sexy Beast, Truffled Old Ale, Satellite Espresso Stout, Bubbly Wit, Nino’s Prickly Pears, and Spanglish Fly, a biere de garde brewed with wormwood, yarrow, and ginger.

Gourmet mushrooms and potentially hallucinogenic herbs are one thing, but smoked brains… really? Believe it or not, much of the world considers brain to be a true delicacy. Think Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but not ridiculous. Many also believe that using every part of an animal not only increases and encourages sustainability, but also honors the animal’s life and death.

Dock Street will release this brainy new brew on March 30th. Join us at Dock Street at 7pm for live music from acoustic funky filth band Face and the Filthies, goblets of this never before done brew, and a screening of The Walking Dead Season Finale. Growlers will be available for those who’d rather drink their brains out at home. Eff the Governor.

And remember… IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD!
