    Awesome - Obviously they cultured it after he just come back from walking in the Oregon countryside, and he rinsed his beard in starsan iprior to heading out!

    I'd definitely prefer it to beer made with yeast from this beard



    But sounds more like a media stunt than anything else.

    I'd feel better about it if the yeast ferments at high temperatures.

    It should be a wild ale DFH collab featuring cherries smashed with Sam's bocce ball. Garrett Oliver can age the beer on "oxford companion" book staves.

    Don't care if it turn out great, I won't be drinking it. And I'll drink a lot of crazy beers.

    Publicity stunt. Saying that it's got us talking about it, so job done. It will sell out and then we will see it on ebay for lots of cash. I wouldn't actively seek it our, but I would try it if given an opportunity.

    I hope Australian breweries start doing it as well. Mt Goat can use yeast from Merv Hughes' moustache, Moo Brew can use Boonie's and Coopers should have based their anniversary beer around yeast from the band, The Beards. They are three beverages I would most certainly buy.
