Beer Gut

Auto-Brewery Syndrome was the diagnosis for a 61 year old man who kept turning up drunk without drinking any alcohol. Doctors actually isolated him in the hospital with only food and non-alcoholic beverages they supplied and still his blood alcohol content became elevated. The answer they came up with was that the man's intestinal tract contained so much brewers yeast that it acted as an internal brewery. He was becoming drunk from the inside when he consumed carbs. He was looking for a cure for a disease many people would be trying to catch!

Nobody would believe it till they isolated him. He needs a t-shirt that says "I TOLD YOU SO!".

It's like he won a lottery. Free brew is fine regardless of the source.

Most people wouldn't consider a fungal growth to be welcome, but when it comes to booze, most people forget about where it comes from.

The down side is that brewer's yeast produces a LOT of gas.
