The french call it “terroir”, we call it the Local Yeast Project. If you want to make a beer truly local, you’ve got to have a local yeast. Lucky for you, every city across the U.S. is chock full of wild yeast ready and willing to make a lunch out of your barley sugar.
Bootleg Biology is the first organization to pioneer the collection and cultivation of official yeast strains for U.S. cities and states as part of the Local Yeast Project, beginning with the original S. Arlingtonesis.
Now you can finally make a beer style that is totally unique to where you live or other parts of the country, since the characteristics of each local yeast will impart a taste and aroma unlike any other.
Here’s what Bootleg Biology currently has available, with many more in the pipeline.
