Beard beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maierís beard. No need to freak out, brewers have used wild yeasts in beer making for centuries. John has had the same old growth beard since 1978 and for over 15,000 brews, so it is no great surprise that a natural yeast ideal for brewing was discovered in his beard. What does beard beer taste like? try it, we think youíll be surprised...

Hey, I have a beard. Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big fruity esters throughout, sweet caramel malty notes, soft Bready character. Light oxidized notes. Belgian like.

Tap @ Barcade w/ Erica. Dark golden caramel looking pour, no head or lacing whatsoever. Nose is candy-like Belgian yeasts. Light or maybe medium mouthfeel carries notes of yeast, banana... finishes rather quickly, not a squatter.

bmeup (588) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2015
DMís BB30/6/16 from the importer. Golden, low bubbles, bath ring head. Yeasty, spice, mild orange citrus, rye bread, sweet, really sweet. Not unpleasant though not much more. The beer will sell, no doubt, probably for novelty reasons, itís not bad, but really.... whatís next?..... and do we really want to taste it.....the mind boggles!

Bottle. My first from this brewery for a long time. Slightly hazy orange appearance. Fruity pleasant aroma with a fruity flavour that lingers on the taste buds.Hard to classify this one-just file under nice.

RCx240 (141) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color, off white head. Aroma of orange zest, coriander. Taste is sweet, with notes of molasses. Underlying citrus notes throughout, finishing with lingering notes of coriander. Very soft carbonation, creamy texture. Very unique beer, worth trying.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle. Golden and frothy with a definitive funk, as I supposed one should only expect from such a concoction. Thereís a hint of orange rind, too. (#6006, 7/19/2015)

The name of the beer along with the fact that it was made the beard yeast meant that I has to try it. This is an absolutely delicious beer! It tastes like a fine Belgian! Respect the beard!

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy pale golden coloured with a spicy lemon and citrus fruity flavour, malty and biscuit notes followed by vanilla and floral fruit and slight bitterness on the finish. Very Good!
