This image is a DNA photograph. It was captured as part of the beerDNA series; a collaboration with Maine craft breweries to showcase the beauty of an integral part of what makes each brewery so unique, their yeast. Yeast samples were collected from 16 different Maine breweries, processed in a molecular lab and photographed.

Did you know? Yeast is a critical part of the brewing process in that it ferments the sugars released from grains and converts them to alcohol. Many breweries use different strains of yeast, or propagate their own house strains, adding to the complexity and originality of the beers. Yeast is also an environmental powerhouse. It plays critical roles in ecosystems such as decomposing biological material and degrading environmental pollutants.

 

Brewer’s Statement: Originates from Germany. Our house lager strain is nice and clean. We use it mostly for Pepperell Pils because it showcases the German malt flavors and the spicy/floral noble hops perfectly while contributing just a touch of the clean, lager flavor you expect from a German-style pils, without the sweetness or fruity esters produced by ale yeasts. It’s perfect for a hoppy, dry lager. – Ian McConnell, Founder/Head Brewer
