Who cares about any of that? I like beer, with or without animal parts or genetically modified whatevers. :)

It's a special request. You gotta ask them for it. ;)

I’m not a beermaker and have zero science background (alas) but even I could tell that her claims and charges were nonsense.

I stopped reading right after this sentence. :/

As I said when I posted the link:


A member of another forum I participate in posted a link to this article.  An interesting read, in a perverse sort of way.

For all of you truthers out there.
For everybody else, it will either make you laugh, or piss you off.
Before you get too worked up, consider the source. (Look at the other topics discussed there)

Shocking Ingredients Found In Beer!


Unfortunately, all too often, it is this type of blather by The Food Babe and others that passes for investigative reporting these days.  Dumb-assery indeed!

If you kept reading, you'd find out that she proceeded to interview head brewers about ingredient use.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!
Thanks
