With all the breweries out there, beer makers are getting creative with their brews to help themselves stand out in the crowd. And The Wild Beer Company, a brewery in England, is no exception. They’ve come out with a new beer called “Of The Sea” which they describe as “bringing the sea to your glass.”
So what does that even mean? Brewers make this beer with 30 live lobsters, along with dulse seaweeds and sea herbs, and saffron and star anise, among other ingredients. And they use a saison yeast too, creating a brew with a “briny hit and rich smoothness which accentuates the taste of the sea.”
But do people like the flavor? Wild Beer co-founder Andrew Cooper says the reaction was “initially mixed.” “But we’d rather brew something genuinely interesting and one that gets an emotional reaction from people than just another beer,” he explains. Good job then!
