It turns out you have one of the key ingredients for beer in your belly button. After hearing about beer made from yeast in a man’s beard, brewers in Australia have crafted beer with yeast found in their belly button lint. Yup…that fuzzy stuff that travels along the treasure trail.
While it might sound gross, the brewers were careful to make sure the yeast they produced was sterile to drink. “It’s perfectly safe, yeast is yeast – this beer is no different to any other beer out there.” Um, yes it is. It is made from gunk you found in your belly button. I don’t care if it’s safe for me to drink or not – you went digging for yeast in the cavern that is your belly button.
So what does Belly Button Beer taste like? According to the brewery, it’s “in the style of a new world-ish Belgian-ish Witbier with fresh orange zest and toasted coriander seeds.” I tried to lick my belly button to see if the taste was similar…but quickly found out, I’m not that flexible.
