Who would have thought that Ireland would have a brew?

Guinness ferments a portion of every batch with wild yeast, pasteurizes the resulting beer and blends it back into the batch. It seems they should have a pretty good idea of what sorts of yeast are blowing in the wind, IMHO.

Genome analysis shows that isolates similar to the Irish strains contributed to the S. eubayanus component of S. pastorianus, but isolates from Tibet made a larger contribution.

Still 2nd place

Except the yeasts that make beer are not airborn - that is if you don't count insect dispersal.

Since S. cerevisiae is not airborne, it requires a vector to move.[14]
