Lakefront Brewery recalls My Turn Junk Beer; bottles could explode

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) — Lakefront Brewery recalled bottles of the My Turn Junk Beer because, if left unrefrigerated, the beer continues to ferment and could explode.

Small amounts of wild yeast, from the cherries the beer is brewed with, are still in the beer and continue to produce carbon dioxide.

The company stressed the beer remains 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. Purchasers should take a photograph of the bottle’s back label, send it to, along with their address, by Oct. 1and they will be sent a check to compensate them.

According to Lakefront, no customers have been injured and the company received no complaints. The brewery said it is issuing the recall voluntarily.
