"...probably carcinogenic..."

The WHO must be operating under the assumption that there are no known safe amounts of glyphosate? Despite that even the EPA considers it safe for use.

I have a creeping suspicion this is coming from the barley sprayed w the pesticide. I also think it's probably in beer here as well.

Now we know where IT comes from. Future xBrmt maybe? Blind triangle test between beer with pesticides and beer without?

Roundup vs Sevin? Maybe a "March Madness" style bracket for the best pesticide beer? I've got a Neem Oil Stout winning the organic category, Mantis Maerzen taking the natural predators group, and Drew's Agent Orange Saison winning the whole thing  ;D

Nice. Better watch out for Bug-B-Gone Barleywine. They could be a Cinderella team.     ;)

Zika Zima clone? Is that considered a historical style in the 2015 BJCP guidelines?

Here is the take from Mahr's in Bamberg.

Not a problem if you use locally grown barley malt. Malts imported from other parts of the EU can be a source.
