Beer yeasts are dogs, wine yeasts are cats

People have been enjoying the ability of yeasts to produce beer and wine since the dawn of civilization. Researchers from VIB, KU Leuven, Ghent University found that yeasts used for beer and winemaking have been domesticated in the 16th century, around 100 years before the discovery of microbes. With a US research team, the Belgian teams analyzed genomes and fermentation characteristics of more than 150 industrial yeasts used to produce different beers, wines and bread.
