Though it may seem like it, Rogue brewery’s Beard Beer is no joke.
“Beard Beer is brewed with a yeast created from brewmaster John Maier’s beard,” reads the explanation on Rogue’s website.
After searching fora yeast to complement the local Oregon ingredientsin a new beer,Maier – whose “old-growth” beard has been flourishing since 1978 – eventually turned to his own beard yeast.
Let’s just hope Maier washed his beard before he took the specimen.
