Auto-Brewery Syndrome

I came across this story from NPR about a man who was brewing beer in his gut. He would eat fermentable foods and then the Saccharomyces in his gut would get him drunk. Wild huh? I can't think of a worst brewing-yeast related predicament. I enjoy drinking beer because I like the flavors; truth be told I don't especially like being drunk. This man was eating pasta and getting drunk, yikes. Let this be a lesson folks, don't let the doctor accuse you of being a closet drunk just because you have a few beers now and again. If somethings not right, find a new doctor, or at least lay off the carbs.
