"Yeast trapped inside a 45 million year old weevil, trapped inside amber has been extracted, activated, and used to brew beer. According to the report, the beer has 'a weird spiciness at the finish.' The brewer, Raul Cano, a scientist at the California Polytechnic State University, attributes this to the yeast's unusual metabolism. 'The ancient yeast is restricted to a narrow band of carbohydrates, unlike more modern yeasts, which can consume just about any kind of sugar,' said Cano. Cano brews barrels of Pale Ale and German Wheat Beer under the Fossil Fuels Brewing Co. label."

Was there a follow-up report on what happened to William Brand and the other beer critiques who tasted the beer, say, trips to the toilet or something like that? Or worse: zombiefied.

Hell, if they start mass production, and people left and right become zombies, you'll know why. :blink:
