    45 million years old and it probably still tastes better than Bud Lite.

    Actually this is a really cool thing. An entirely new strain of yeast could drastically change the flavor of the beer. I would love to try it.

    Because a lot of people don't have taste?

    Did you hear Tom is building an underground bunker to prepare for the drunk zombies? I heard he is down there with Clay Aiken.
