Want a more interactive way to watch “The Walking Dead?

Philadelphia’s Dock Street Brewing Company has the answer: Watch it while sipping their special beer made from brains.

The beer, titled “Walker” in honor of the violent, wandering zombies featured in the show, is made with goat brains and will debut on March 30 for the AMC hit’s season four finale.

Dock Street’s head brewer, Justin Low, and brewery representative Sasha Certo-Ware are both avid fans of the show. They say the beer is their “brainchild.”

“More often than not, monotonous Monday cleaning rituals (labors of love for brewers everywhere) were spent recapping the previous night’s twists, turns, narrow escapes, or untimely goodbyes,” the brewery explained in a press release, “Dock Street wanted to brew a special tribute to the show.”

The 7.2 percent alcoholic American Pale Stout is brewed with malted wheat, oats, flaked barley, and fuggle hops, as well as cranberries “to create a sinister, bloody hue, and a slight tartness.”

The “brainchild” is complete with roasting goat brains over hot coals to provide the beer with “intriguing, subtle smoke notes.”

In the press release, the brewery also invited fans to a screening of the finale.

The beer will no doubt be a hit among the show’s huge fan base, which has grown with each season.

The show’s season four premiere set the record for the most-watched cable drama series in history, with 16.1 million viewers.

With some “Walker” in hand, the followers of the drama may set a new record on March 30.
