    Hardywood Gingerbread Stout may not be the "craziest", but it is definiteely one of the most unquie. There are lots of pale ales that one may remind me of another. I'd have to say. No other beer reminds me of this one

    I was gifted a bottle of Voodoo Maple Bacon Ale last week. I didn't think it was that exotic tasting. It just tasted like a rauchbier with way too many kinds of disparate smoked malts. I'm glad I tried it but happy to never have it again.

    Most exotic beer I've ever drank...not really sure anything I've had counts as really exotic these days when you can find saisons with candied endive, chocolate and a bunch of other stuff in it or a coffee lambic. As long as it tastes good, I think it's fine to brew it. I'm not down for exotic brews just to say you did something crazy. If it doesn't taste good, don't sell it. Five ingredients or five hundred, the same rule of flavor should apply first and foremost.

    Well it would be Right Brain Brewery's Spear Beer, it is pretty much an Asapargus Lager, it was complete shit and I love Asparagus.

    Also Short's Blood Beer is pretty crazy too, not a fan though, better than I thought it would be.

    I had a dunkel-wiezen, which was perfectly good by itself -- even delicious -- splashed with some kind of red, fruity syrup by the barman. "Check this out," he said. Really? That, to me, was crazy.

    Any beer made with different food flavors may be weird, but they're at least drinkable...to varying degrees. Brews made from body parts, bodily fluids or waste...I'll pass.

    21st amendment hell or high watermelon, It tasted like bitter jolly ranchers. The taste lingered a bit too long.
