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: We chose this strain as it represents very classic German Weissbier flavors like banana and clove. We approach the yeast different than our German counterparts to impart a clean, crisp and dry finish on our Weissbiers. This allows us to bring that old world flavor to a new era of beer drinker. – Dustin Johnson, Owner & Head of Brewery Operations
