Default Oyster Porter- Strange beer recpies

I saw a recipe for an oyster porter. What other odd ingredients have you seen in beer recipies?

I am so glad you brought up this interesting topic. I saw a recipe that called for a whole chicken with its bones broken to be fermented with the ale. You've got to love the colonial times.

I don't know how strange this is professor but I have tried putting many different things in my beer. In fact I like to add a little cayenne pepper when I brew a chocolate stout to slightly accentuate the chocolate flavor and add a hint of zip.

I have heard that adding some pepper(s) to a stout or porter can be quite nice. I have yet to try it though. I saw a recipe for a green chili wheat ale that looked interesting.

Other odd recipe ideas:

Carrot Beer
Garlick Beer
Sweet Potato Beer
Liqorice Ale
Green Apple Jolly Rancher Lambic

And of course a summer beer complete with lawn clippings.

Thanks for the response Ken.

I was thinking of brewing up either a brown ale, or a nut brown ale. Then, right before bottling, steeping a whole vanilla bean and some chopped walnuts for about an hour to make a sort of tea to be added to the fermented wort to make a Vanilla Walnut Brown Ale......

I remember reading a mushroom one in a bookstore one time. Sounded amazing. Wish I had bought the book. I'm sure it's rotten, but mushrooms rule.

I was reading in the paper yesterday about a drink in Japan, shochu I think, that is made from fermented and distilled sweet potatoes to around 50 proof. Reading between the lines of the article it sounded like it's fermented in open containers with some of the microbes in the distillery contributing to the fermentation, much like a lambic or geuze (sp?). Sounded kind of interesting...apparently it's more popular now in Japan than sake.
