People are medically ignorant, the kind of bacteria that can survive in a beer media are pretty much limited to non-pathogenic lifeforms, and you'd notice it right away (smell, taste etc.)

Your friends are wrong.

Just wait until Revvy sees this, or maybe he is trying to restrain himself. Nothing pathogenic can grow in beer.

Drinking the yeast dregs from a bottle could give even the most steel-stomached some diarrhea. In particular, drinking the dregs from a sour, containing many probiotic bacteria, can result in diarrhea or upset GI. This is completely different than causing an infection in your friends. The same thing will happen if you eat 8 cups of yogurt.

Maybe they are gluten intolerant. Or perhaps they shared a little saliva, just a thought, no accusations here.

It's also unlikely that any food poisoning occurs as fast as 30 minutes. . . but then, maybe it wasn't a common food bug.

It may have something to do with something else they ate. Could also be a flu bug or something similar.

Not saying it wasn't the beer . .. just that it doesn't seem like the likely culprit to me.

Uh, It WASN'T the beer. NOTHING PATHOGENIC CAN EXIST IN BEER, EVEN IF THE BEER IS INFECTED.......

It's probably a little thing called the Norovirus that's going around.

I have a friend who is very sensitive to yeast. He MUST filter his homebrew. I don't know the exact nature of his body's response to it.

Na, just a case of a one beer [email protected]?. Kidding, reverse his mis trust and hold his inability to hold his liquor over his head. Btw- tell em to go to the freeging doctor, they obviously have Influenza. That'll set em straight.

hmmm . . . I remember going to a Mexican place when the kids were school age. Shared one of those Bloomin Onion things with dip. Got home and not much later everyone was sick. The girls were hanging on the toilets. Me and Brian were bent over in the back yard. Didn't eat Mexican again for over five years.

Food intoxication can occur as soon as one hour after ingestion. Food poisoning usually takes 12-24 hours.

This is different than beer intoxication, which happens almost instantly and results in awesome and intelligentitis.
