Guh-ross. I'm a ticker, but I'll be staying away from that one.

It's taking Hair of the Dog one step further.

There was a beer that was made as an art project a while back using another bodily yeast. Google at you own leisure/risk.

Me too, I doubt there will be many "wants" for this.

Yeah, I like wild and fermented stuff - stinky cheese and the like, and even some pretty extreme food, but for some reason, this to me is more gross than that Swedish sour herring...

First that bacon doughnut thing, now this. Rogue has jumped the shark.

I'm also starting to wonder what Pac-Man means... :-?

It marks the first time I didn't choose a column because I thought it was awful.

If they announce that they announce that they're revamped the Yellow Snow IPA so that it's more "authentic", you know we'll be in trouble. :P

He works in a yeast-laden environment all the time. I'd be more surprised if they didn't find any yeast on him! There's probably a good chance that it's basically a variety that they work with all the time. Who cares if it was on his beard? (they grew a culture on a petri dish in a lab, I'm sure it's more sanitary than many things we do everyday).

Just some silly free press.

sort of what i was thinking. it's not like they had the dude dip his beard in the beer to inoculate it (and rinse off any breakfast leftovers). it's a culture, and likely reflects his environment more than his bathing habits. it's likely more "sanitary" than spontaneously fermented beers that are just inoculated with whatever floats in on the breeze (yeast, bacteria, bugs, etc). i don't know that i'll rush out to try it, but mostly because it's a goofy marketing gimmick.

I'm willing to shave the goatee and sell it to any brewer reading this board for the right price.
