Beard Beer, sounds like a bro’s choice of brew right? Maybe, if you’re into beer literally brewed from beard yeast.
Created by Rogue Ales, Brewmaster John Maier came up with the idea on a whim. Just for funsies one day, Maier extracted yeast from his very own beard to produce a sweet, distinct ale, or “Beard Beer.”
Available to order online, the product description helps to clarify any misconceptions, just in case you thought things were getting a little too hairy.
It’s here! Our latest brew dedicated to Beards, Beard Beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier’s Beard. No Need to freak out, Brewers have used wild yeasts in beer making for centuries. John has had the same Old Growth Beard since 1983 and for over 15,000 brews, so it is no great surprise that a natural yeast ideal for brewing was discovered in his beard.
What does Beard Beer taste like? Try it, we think you’ll be surprised…
I’m not too sure I’m into those kinds of surprises.
Just to clarify, this isn’t a “shake due to settling” situation, and the brew doesn’t have any wild hairs floating around in it. Whew, that makes it all better, right?
