Brewery pays homage to 'Walking Dead' season four finale with brain-infused beer

The season four finale of "The Walking Dead" has nearly shambled upon us, and with that, the Dock Street Brewing Company in Philadelphia has created a brew just for fans. Cnet "reviewed" the pale American stout on Tuesday.

A somewhat mundane ingredient list is zombified when one notes that in addition to the more typical wheat, oats, flaked barley, and organic cranberries, Dock Street's Walker also includes brains. That's right, although we are not speaking about human brains. Instead, Walker includes smoked goat brains.

Congratulate Justin Low, the head brewer of Dock Street, for the new brew. As a big fan of "The Walking Dead," he simply had to create something tasty for zombies to imbibe. The beer will get its official release at Dock Street on March 30, along with a screening of "The Walking Dead" season four finale.

Folks may need to get drunk after that finale. Creator Robert Kirkman says that the finale will "shock people." What could be more shocking that the episode from just two weeks ago, "The Grove" ("look at the flowers")?

Time will tell.  AMC airs the season four finale of "The Walking Dead" on Sunday, March 30, at 9 p.m. ET.
