    As the titles states, what are some oddball beer products you've seen? I'm talking things like soap, local beer infused chips, etc. I'm also curious...are there hop infused deodorant? Cause at times I don't want "winter blast," or lavender scents, I'd like straight up citra hopped deodorant!

    There are hop infused deodorants and shower gels, I've seen them in Germany. A friend of mine also swears by the Dogfish Head soap. Beer Schnapps was also a big thing in Germany, but that's not a non-alcohol product. I've seen pretzels and lip balm as well.

    I have enjoyed most of the products I have gotten made with beer/inspired by a beer.

    Those include:

    A Great Lakes Christmas Ale Chapstick

    Soap made with spent grain from Stone Brewing

    Mustard made with Stone Brewing beers

    I have used Tom's natural deodorant that has hop oil in it.

    Definitely remember using Tom's deodorant and finding it has hop oil. Just wished it smelled like hops!

    Hot sauce. I know there is an Arrogant Bastard hot sauce. I think O'Dell's has/had one as well. Super delicious, just not really hot at all.

    Wait. That's a consumable.

    All of those soaps, shampoos, deodorants, and lip balms are brewers' ways of trying to give beer geeks a hint.

    Not for (human) consumption: Dawg Grog, a non-alcoholic drink made from Boneyard’s spent grain.

    I’ve seen varietal-specific (Cascade, Citra, etc.) hard candies and lollipops.

    Leffe has its own cheese which apparently pairs really well with its products:


    I am probably cheating as its consumable, but you get the idea.

    OH! Also, a buddy of mine brought some Heady Topper hot sauce from The Alchemist not long ago. Pretty neat.

    I am pretty sure there is an "all-natural" bug repellant that had some minor amount of hop oil in it... Burt's Bees brand maybe? Not worth remembering because it didn't do shit to repel mosquitos... Need the DEET!

    I’ve used this weird foamy shampoo that comes in a silver 16 oz can with black writing. It has a drawing of some dude from the side with foam and hops in his hair drinking a can of beer. Helped my male pattern baldness. Think it was called toppy header or something.

    Might have been said already but the last brewery I worked at sold Brew Salt. Not directly made with beer but I hated that we had that garbage. Put salt in my beer again, I dare ya.

    I work as a fly fishing guide, often on some pretty remote rivers. One of my friends who is also a guide summed up all natural homemade bug repellent pretty well with the 10/20/30 theory which is the number of minutes before the crunchiest hippie there is starts begging you for some of your DEET.
    I don't like slathering myself in industrial chemicals at all, but sometimes there's not much choice.
