This Beer Is Made With Yeast From A Fossil

Bone dusters beer

Lost Rhino Brewing isn’t making any old kind of beer, they’re making beer from resources that are super old. They’ve been working with Paleo Quest (a non-profit organization with a mission to advance paleontology and geology) to develop a beer made with a yeast sampled directly from a fossil’s surface. After looking at several incompatible samples, one swab from a fossilized whale bone fermented. With that success, Lost Rhino incorporated the yeast into an amber ale called Bone Dusters. They’re launching the beer on Wednesday, June 18, at the brewery.
