With the rise of home brewing and craft beers, we've seen tons of weird beers come about. There have been donut-flavored beers and even a whale-flavored one, but none have gone so far as to use history in its flavoring.

Paleo Quest thought it would be an interesting idea for raising awareness in paleontology by combining it with one of America's favorite pastimes: drinking. This craft beer features yeast from 35 million-year-old whale fossils, so each time you drink it you are literally ingesting history.

This beer isn't just an experiment though. The beer will be made commercially available through the Lost Rhino brewing company. The main goal of the company is to prove that science and paleontology is accessible to everyone, regardless of preference, education or interest level.
