In response to the article titled, They Made Beer From Beard Yeast (And We Have Questions), Rogue Brewmaster John “The Beard” Maier has issued the following answers.
1: Beard Yeast is a previously undiscovered variety of wild yeast cultivated from The Beard. As The Beard has been brewing for more than 27 years, finding a fermentable yeast hidden in his follicles is not so far fetched.
2: Beard Beer does not need to be defined by style or with tasting notes. It is simply meant to be enjoyed.
3: We do not know if it tastes like a beard because we don’t know what a beard tastes like.
