Delirium Tremens – the beer

Delirium Tremens is the name of the life-threatening alcohol withdrawal syndrome that can cause seizures and hallucinations – it is also the name of a strong Beligian beer.

I’m not entirely sure about the wisdom of naming an alcholic drink after a severe neurological syndrome caused by alcohol intoxication.

It’s a bit like naming a motorbike ‘traumatic brain injury’ or a boating company ‘drowned passengers’.

Apparently, it’s an excellent beer, as it won Best Beer in the World at the World Beer Championships.

Probably best drunk in moderation though, for irony’s sake.
