Unusual & WTF!
Recently, brewers have been pushing the borders brewing beers with some exceptionally unusual ingredients, and the trend doesn’t show any sign of stopping.
Beers ranging from the Icelandic beer infused with whale testicles to a saison brewed with prehistoric, fossilized yeast DNA—and a pilsner made with recycled human urine.
These are some of the unusual and the weirdest ingredients used in brewing beers.
The acceptance and liking of unconventional or flamboyant food flavors are related to food neophobia.
The term food neophobia can be defined as a reluctance to eat unfamiliar foods. This phenomenon happens because humans need to approach novel foods in their search for food; but otherwise, they need to protect themselves from potentially poisonous foods.
Food neophobia has been shown to be strongly correlated with an individual’s willingness to eat and liking of unfamiliar foods.
