Cucumber beers. Yep, that’s a thing.

Move over hops?

Trinity Brewing’s Elektrick Cukumbuhh, which won a bronze medal at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival, is brewed with 700 lbs. of organic, hand-peeled cucumbers

Yes, there are oddball adjuncts appearing in beers today—Stilton cheese culture and beard cultures, civet poop coffee and elephant poop coffee, bull testicles and dung-smoked whale testicles—but as much as cucumbers seem weird to throw in a beer, once shock wears off, deft and delicious beer remains.

I’m not sure which is more astonishing: that there are several beers made with this vegetable or the fact that cucumbers aren’t veggies at all.
