Beard beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier’s 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 you’ll be surprised...

Pours a cloudy gold with a moderate white head. Nose is very yeasty. Tastes like a Belgian - sweet but with a nice, slight bitterness. To me, this would be better on a warm day. Although I am not a huge fan of Belgian ales because I do not really like the yeast strains they use, this is a pretty good beer.

The_Osprey (5986) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
July 2016 - Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Rogue Beard Beer’, picked up in London. The premise is that it’s made using yeast found in the brewer’s beard, though I’m not sure that justifies the extra ££££age! Pours clear orange, still, lightly sparkling, foamy off-white head. Aroma has some light banana ester, pear drops, tangerine. Body is a little foamy with soft carbonation. Taste is light biscuity malt, touch estery, not much going on, watery fruits, bready sugars. Has a nice balance between beard and beer. Glad I tried it to satisfy curiosity. (2.9)
