Ah! My bad. Carry on.

Katrina was on Brewmasters a decent amount and it sounded like she knew what she was doing so Im going to go ahead and give them the benefit of the doubt.

I'd agree, if I had to guess this is a misquote from the article. I would think they'd be referring to the first brewery to brew a beer using all local ingredients/materials from the area not just the yeast but that's purely speculation. I think Sam and the DFH crew know their place in the industry and are respectful to the other breweries out there.

Agreed, me too. For those of us who have tried to culture wild yeast and brew a decent beer with it, we know how much work it is to get an even somewhat palatable strain. I'd be saying how awesome my brewery was too!

DFH is mostly a maker of overpriced hyped up novelty beers. Katrina makes it sound like they are the first brewery ever to use wild yeast. It cant be a misquote because there were beers done using all local ingredients before. Back in the day brewers used local ingredients and at some point didnt even know about yeast. Everything was local.

This is a big thumbs down. Novelty in no way....Sam has a vission, uses quality ingredients, brews it, and sells it. Half of his great beers don't even make it to distribution because they're brew pup exclusive.

I'd agree that not all DFH beers I like, but at least they have the balls to put out what they want.

Couldn't disagree with you more.

I'm not commenting on DFH beers, but that article was terrible.

Detroit, wall street, What does that have to do with beer?? it is just junk sound-bites. I didn't go past the first page in fear that I would be called the 1%, and that the 99% would occupy my front yard until I gave them 99% of my wild yeasts.

Be honest, how drunk were you when you wrote this? brew pup, that sounds like a great dog.
