A brewery in southwest England has given one of its beers a real shellfish twist. The Wild Beer Co used 30 live lobsters ― plus cockles, Kombu seaweed, sea salt, sea herbs, star anise and saffron ― to produce its 7 percent brew, called Of The Sea. Initial reaction to the concept was “mixed,” the company’s co-founder Andrew Cooper told HuffPost during a tasting at its brewery near Shepton Mallet in Somerset this month. “But we’d far rather brew something genuinely interesting and one that gets an emotional reaction from people than just another beer,” he added.
