Philadelphia’s Dock Street Brewing Company will release a zombie-friendly brew in honor of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

The American Pale Stout, which has been dubbed Dock Street Walker, is made with malted wheat, oats, flaked barley, cranberry and an extra-special ingredient — smoked goat brains.

“The pre-sparge-brain-addition provides this beer with intriguing, subtle smoke notes,” the brewery says in a press release. “In true walker fashion, don’t be surprised if its head doesn’t hang around forever.”

The beverage, which Dock Street Brewing Company is calling “quite possibly the smartest beer you’ll ever drink,” will be released on Sunday before “The Walking Dead” season finale.

This isn’t the first time a brewery has crafted a beer in honor of an AMC drama.

Marble Brewery in Albuquerque, N.M., made two “Breaking Bad” brews in honor of the series’ finale in August. However, those didn’t contain any unusual show-related ingredients.
