(Scroll down for video) A beer brewery in Australia, has announced that it began selling beer made from belly button dirt.

The 7 cent Brewery, which is based in Victoria, announced their new bizarre method of brewing beer last week.

The company claims that this is the first beer in the world fermented from yeast captured from the brewer’s belly button.

The process of isolating the yeast strain involved swabbing samples of each of the brewers’ belly buttons.

After allowing the dirt to incubate, they found all sorts of interesting things growing, including what appeared to be colonies of yeast.

Positive controls were used to help identify yeast colonies and negative controls were used to ensure that the techniques were sterile.

The company then selected individual yeast colonies and grew them up until they had enough to make beer. Four different grains were also used to add both body and complexity, including barley, wheat, oats and rye.

The inspiration for this beer arose a couple of years ago when Rogue produced their Beard Beer fermented with yeast captured from the brewer’s beard.

Once you get used to the idea that yeast is yeast no matter where you get it from, then you can just sit back and enjoy the beer, the company wrote on its website.
