If these brews are anything like their labels, you're in for a hell of a hangover

1. Homunculus

Smuttynose Brewery, New Hampshire, USA

A homunculus is defined as a very small human or humanoid figure. Hence the label featuring sperm with human faces. Those game enough to raise the bottle to their lips will be rewarded with hoppy, Belgian-style golden ale.

 Pork slap

2. Pork Slap

Butternuts Beer & Ale, Garrattsville, NY, USA

Despite what the label might lead you to believe, no pig was hurt in the making of this beer. 


3. Zombie Dust

Three Floyds Brewery, Munster, Illinois, USA

This small artisanal brewery, just down the road from Chicago, knocked this ale out for Halloween. A quick visit to their website suggests that it might just be Halloween everyday in Munster.


4. Galactic Red Imperial

Hopworks, Portland, Oregon, USA

With an AVB of 9.5%, it won't take many of these before you're floating in space.

 Hoptimus Prime

5. Hoptimus Prime

Robinsons Brewery, Stockport, UK

For those who like a good pun with their beer. Sadly, no sign of Megan Hop in  a supporting role.

 Luchre Libre

6. Cerveceria Sagrada

Cerveceria Sagrada Brewer, Mexico City, Mexico

Based on the golden age of Lucha Libre, each of these craft beers is named after a legend of Mexican wrestling. And guaranteed to pack as much of a punch.

7. Dogzilla

Laughing Dog Brewery, Idaho, USA

Big, black and mean, this malty beer is another brew with a hell of a bite.

8. Cockeyed Cooper

Crooked Line Beers, Salt Lake City, USA

With the taste of bourbon and splashes of vanilla, this beer is a real barrel of laughs. And with an ABV of 11.1%, likely to do as much damage as going over Niagra Falls in a wooden cask.

Gonzo Beer

9. Gonzo Imperial Porter

Flying Dog Ales, Maryland, USA

Like going on a road trip across the US with Hunter S Thompson. But in a bottle.
