- Asparagus beer- Yes there are jalapeno beers and sweet potato beers that are good so I am not anti vegetable here. However, I do have to draw the line here at this deadly combination. Think of it this way. What does beer bring on as a side effect? Urination. What is asparagus known for? Smelly urine. So let's not cross the two and create the evil hybrid that will give us copious amounts of extra foul urine. You have been warned.
- Chitterlings- If you are not aware of what these are then you will probably be disgusted when you find out. Chitterlings are a soul food delicacy consisting of the small intestines of a pig. Yes, you heard that right. An animal that wallows in feces and eats damn near anything creates a food item composed of it's digestive tract. I have not seen a lot of meat beers outside of bacon, but it is only a matter of time before we see a porterhouse porter or a sirloin stout. That is ok, but we do need to head this one off before it happens. I have had enough beers that taste like pig feces, please don't add a product that transports pig feces to a beer.
- Second Harvest- Made popular by the television program, THE LEAGUE, second harvest involves eating undigested morsels from another animals waste. I have seen Bear Grylls eat berries from bear scat so I know this practice exists. If you saw the movie, BUCKET LIST, they also describe a famous coffee that is second harvested from digested coffee beans that passed through a civet cat. The theme here is familiar. Fecal matter does not belong in beer.
- Fish beer- This slippery slope has already started so hopefully we can get enough public sentiment to stop this. We already have oyster stouts, that Budweiser clam tomato thing, a chocolate lobster beer,and an Old Bay flavored beer. I don't know of any actual fish beers offhand, but either way my opinion remains the same. Beer pared with fish is ok. Beer made from fish is not. There is a reason you never see fish soda at the grocery store. Brewers please follow suit.
- Bong water- Beer and stoner culture often intersect as evident by some of the funny beer names and hop descriptions. Sticking with the main theory about waste products, bong water is yet another waste product that does not need to hit the beer scene. It is there to protect you from the harmful stuff in smoke so by all means leave it there. I guess you could make the argument that scotch whiskey is just glorified , peat bong water, but I am still going to suggest this one never sees the light of day. Stoners are clever, inventive people who can do amazing things with pipes, metal pieces and various hoses. Please think of something else to add to beer besides your waste water.
So there you have it, six beer types that we do not endorse. Think we missed something? Feel free to drop us a line with your not top suggestions or even tell us why ours may not be correct.
