Lakefront Brewery Recalls Bottled Beer Because It Might Explode

Share This Article

Lakefront Brewery is asking anyone with bottles of “My Turn Junk” to either refrigerate or carefully dispose of them. It has been found that the beer contains small amounts of wild yeast, from the cherries that it was brewed with, which continues to ferment. Subsequently, carbon dioxide builds up in the bottles, making them at risk for explosion.

The beer itself is completely safe to drink. “We all take in wild yeast in the air we breathe and the liquid is perfectly tasty,” said Lakefront Brewery Founder and President, Russ Klisch. “The risk comes with pressure building up in warm beer that continues to ferment.”

Lakefront Brewery is offering a refund to those who dispose of their “My Turn Junk”. Michael Stodola, Brand Manager of Lakefront, asks, “Please take a photograph of the bottle’s back label, send it to support@lakefrontbrewery.com, along with your address, by October 1st and we will send out a check to compensate affected customers.”

There’s only been a few bottles out in the market that have exploded and so far there haven’t been any injuries or customer complaints. However, the Brewery isn’t taking any chances and is voluntarily recalling all bottles as a safety procedure.
