In case you're not aware, Rocky Mountain oysters are what Coloradans call bull testicles, and they're considered a delicacy in the Centennial State. After Wynkoop, Denver's oldest craft brewery, released an April Fools' Day mockumentary showcasing a stout made with the aforementioned "oysters," the Internet was abuzz with beer bloggers, writers and fellow brewers all eager to try it. This ultra-limited beer became a reality in 2012 when the brewery decided to make a small eight-barrel batch, which was served at the Wynkoop brewpub and the Great American Beer Festival. The stout boasts notes of espresso and chocolate, with a dry roasted finish. The meat also adds a smoked flavor and earthy nuttiness (pun intended). Due to its popularity, this beer is still in production and is served on draft at the brewpub.

Price: $6 for 12 oz
7 percent ABV
