Poll: Would You Drink Chicha Peruvian Beer?

Would You Drink Chicha Beer?

"Off-centered stuff for off-centered people" is the slogan used on every beer at Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales, a Milton, DE-based craft brewery. Although the company is perhaps best known for its 60-Minute India Pale Ale, it's made headlines recently for being one of the few to produce chicha, a traditional Peruvian beer made out of corn that's been milled and moistened — in the brewer's mouth.

"Ancient brewers through trial and error learned that the natural enzymes in saliva would convert the starch in corn into sugar, so it would ferment," Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione told the New York Times.

Although the beer's boiled for an hour and Calagione claims it's "completely sterile," I simply don't know if I can stomach a drink that has a stranger's saliva in it. What about you?
