Plenty of recipies for smoked malts and Maple sugar!!

I think the most unusual was a black peppercorn lager! Black pepper so strong you wanted to put it on a steak!

Earlier this year I tasted a Maple/Bacon ale that contained bacon and maple syrup. It was actually very good.
If you looked carefully you could actually see little particles of fat settling out in the beer.

Papazian also mentions an old recipe for "cock ale," in which a whole (dead) rooster is a featured ingredient. Harpoon brewery (Boston) is currently making a limited run of an oyster stout. I haven't been able to find a bottle yet. I know that snake wines can be found in parts of Asia, it would surprise me if snake beers weren't also available. James Spencer makes a Frankenberry (breakfast cereal) beer on one of his video podcasts.

I've seen a recipe before with less than a pound of hops in a five gallon batch.

I've gotten the oyster stout a couple times. Turned out quite good, it's similar to a milk stout.

It does, you "dry hop" the bacon.

I think the weirdest rumored ingredient I've heard was that Newcastle brown ale used to cook a dead goat or sheep in the boil.

Ever since I heard that I refused to drink it. heh.
