Beer-Crazy: The Best Weird Brews of Summer

Think blueberry ale is weird? You clearly haven't tried beers made with oysters, pizza, or doughnuts. But even those are yesteryear's dares. The need to experiment with strange, unorthodox, even vaguely inedible-sounding ingredients is hitting ever-greater heights this summer as brewers unveil oddball concoctions made with gunpowder, Spanish cedar, and, most stomach-turningly, beard yeast. Below, some brand-new, truly unusual beers.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale (Wells & Young's Brewing Company, Bedford, United Kingdom)
The Draw: Uses caramel, inverted sugar, and molasses
Release date: August
Inspired by the traditional English treat, this rich amber beer uses a complex blend of sweeteners topped with a special proprietary liquid toffee for a drink you'd usually eat with a spoon.

$10 to $11 for a four-pack; wellsandyoungs.co.uk
