Who knew that brewing beer at a commercial facility could look so magical and kind of disgusting?

A "breathing sludge monster" is what this is. Want a peek?

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company took a time lapse video of one of the fermentation process of their Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale over the course of six days.
