If you've ever been on a brewery tour (and actually listened instead of drinking the whole time), you'd probably know that yeast is one of the most important elements when it comes to making beer. With that said, it should come as no surprise that brewmasters all over the world are searching for new and unique strains of the living creatures to give their brews a proprietary edge. Turns out a group of brewers in Australia didn't have to look very far to find some... in their bellybuttons.
Brewers at 7 cent Brewery harvested yeast from lint they dug out of their bellybuttons and used it to make what they're aptly calling Belly Button Beer. The, uh, unique brew will debut at the 2016 Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular and could very well be the world's first beer fermented with belly button yeast. Doug Bremner, the brewery's co-founder, said they were inspired by the similarly weird Beard Beer released by Rogue a few years ago, according to a report by Mashable.
