Awesome scientist Raul Cano uncovered an ancient weevil trapped in amber in Burma 10 years ago. He extracted a colony of yeast that had laid dormant for 45 million years, then, in a move so heroic it makes us cry, he re-activated the yeast and brewed some beer. That's what we call "Science!"

With his Fossil Fuels Brewing company, Cano brews barrels of pale ale and German Wheat brew from the ancient yeast taken from a long-dead weevil. Beer tasters have declared the brew "smooth and spicy."  Yeah, spicy because the yeast is 45 million years old!
