Arrow Beard Beer -- No Joke...

This story is from a local (Portland, Oregon) brewery:

http://www.kgw.com/video/featured-vi...160008245.html
PORTLAND A local brewery went rogue to find yeast for a new batch of beer.

Rogue Brewery used a sample from the beard that Brewmaster John Maier has been growing since 1978.

As a joke, the brewery sent in the sample for testing. Then after hitting a wall while looking for a new yeast strain, they found out that the strain they had sent in was perfect for making beer.

I think people are going to be excited about it, said self-described Rogue Mad Scientist John Couchot. I mean this really is the needle in the haystack, and to find it on our brewmaster is phenomenal."

The beard yeast is currently being used in test brews, to fine-tune a beer that will be released early next year.

Sometimes it's better not knowing where something comes from.
