Something strange is going on at the Rogue Ales Brewery in Newport, Oregon. Brewers there are developing an ale made from wild yeast harvested from the beard of Rogue’s award-winning brewmaster, John Maier.

Not really surprising, it's probably from a previous batch.

Yeah, I'm trying real hard not to think about other places one could culture a yeast strain from...

..although way back when, the brewers used to spit in the must and the yeast in their saliva would get things started...

novelty marketing at its finest (worst)?

I am not into all these novelty marketing ploys... Just make good beer and wine and let the product speak for itself.
