Was I intrigued by Rogue’s Beard Beer because of the label? Absolutely. Regardless of the enticing packaging, it happens to be a pretty good beer. The beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier’s beard. Yes, brewed with real live beard yeast.
If you have ever home brewed, the Beard Beer will be oddly familiar. The carbonation is small and subtle. The nose is fruity and sweet with some lemon and citrus notes. The taste is simple with fruit flavors to start and subtle dry, and finishing with hops.
Its worth getting past any mental block associated with the source of the yeast. So go out today and drink a beer crafted with beard yeast!
