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: I chose our house ale yeast strain based on two primary factors. Firstly, I appreciate the clean fermentation profile that this yeast provides for our American ales with an extremely restrained ester profile which allows other recipe and ingredient choices to shine. Secondly, this strain is very hardy and tolerant of rough handling after primary fermentation making it a forgiving workhorse in a production brewery. – Nathan Sanborn, Owner and Head Brewer
