Feast Your Eyes On This Time-Lapse Of 12,400 Gallons Of Beer Fermenting (VIDEO)

It's alive!

By which we mean the process that goes into the creation of beer. That's right: Sierra Nevada has put out a short video of a six day time-lapse showcasing four traditional open fermenters. In order to create the brew, they used 1,216 pounds of whole-cone hops, 1,000 pounds of pure brewers yeast and - of course - 33 years of tradition.

The results go beyond just the 12,400 gallons of beer extracted. Instead, it's a fascinating, foamy look into the way beer is made. Anyone else suddenly thirsty?
