    Would you drink a craft beer made with seaweed?

    I'm more of a purist myself when it comes to beers/ales etc but I'd give it a try.... at least it's not fruit flavored which seems to be all the rage lately.


    Craft Beer Reaches New Depths As Mainers Brew A Batch From Seaweed


    More craft breweries are using exotic ingredients in their creations these days. There are ales made with all kinds of fruit, beers infused with coriander and other spices, stouts brewed with oysters — even beer made from yeast scraped off 35 million-year-old . But what about a beer made with seaweed?


    At . on the Belfast, Maine, waterfront, new beers begin their journey into draft lines and pint glasses inside two large tanks. Marshall Wharf has a reputation for making some unconventional beers — a stout with locally sourced oysters, for example, and a wheat-infused kolsch with jalapeno and habanero peppers. A few years ago, David Carlson, the brewing company's owner, discovered a beer from Scotland, called Kelpie, made with seaweed.

    In response to WhatNowDoYouWant's comment:

    Among various odder ales, I've had the Harpoon Oyster Stout, Stone brewery's Crime and their Punishment (one was tasty but the other was about as hot as eating part of a ghost chili; you wouldn't want to drink a bottle unless you are a pepper freak), Allagash's wild yeast ale, and a litany of others at the extreme beer fest.

    I wouldn't drink most of them with any regularity but hey....I'd try it at least.

     




    What's the Oyster Stout Like? Any good?

    This is the inevitable end of the green movement.

    Why not. Seaweed is good for you...right?

    Seaweed is very good for you as long as it comes from clean waters.

    Very good point though I think I will pretend it is escarole.

    One more for the bucket list.
