Brew for the Brave – Beer Made with Mace
Several years ago, my husband bought me pepper spray because he wanted to make sure that I would be safe if I ever found myself alone and in a dangerous situation. I love that Jay loves me so much that he wants to keep me safe, but I can promise you that I've never actually looked down at the pepper spray that hangs from my keychain and thought, "man, I bet this stuff would taste delicious in a beer!"
I guess I never really even thought anyone would be tempted to drink pepper spray, but apparently, there are. The people at the Dogfish Head brewing company are the minds behind a new craft beer that uses the active ingredient in pepper spray. If you feel brave, the beer is called "In Your Mace". In Your Mace beer is described as,
Coffee milk stout brewed with cinnamon verum chips from the Zanzibar Islands, mace spice, milk sugars, coffee, chicory and most importantly … chili oils, the active ingredient in Mace Brand (yep, the pepper spray).
Would you do it? Would you actually drink this? I'd definitely give it a taste, but I don't know if I'd commit to an entire bottle of it.
If you love trying out different types of craft beers, you won't want to miss the 5th annual Binghamton On Tap craft beer festival which is happening on Saturday, February 23rd at the DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Binghamton.
