Ever wonder what your beer looks like on the microscopic scale?

Searching the net I came upon this site:

PS. IMO, some brews look better under a microscope than in the glass!

...probably because it does...?

I read a lot of the small print and they'll sell you a wallpaper/screensaver. Too expensive for me though.

I'm glad you guys looked them up.

Makes me want to brew a kaleidoscopic oatmeal stout now. Very neat.
