The Huyghe Brewery in Melle, Belgium is no stranger to beer aficionados, but it also knows how to catch the attention of casual pint drinkers with its attention-grabbing, somewhat frightening product names.
Not only will the names knock you out – Delirium Tremens and La Guillotine – but so will the beers themselves; both carry a punch of between 8.5 and 10 percent alcohol, or double what most American beers contain.
They don’t taste bad either. Delirium Tremens was named “Best Beer in the World” at the 1998 World Beer Championships.
You can even use them in your cooking. Here is a recipe for fillet of wolf fish with leek, courgette, mild curry and La Guillotine.
