Trivial Yeast Question

Hi all,

This is completely unrelated to any scientific discussion but I let curiousity
get the better of me.  Isn't Saccharomyces cerevisiae brewer's yeast?  If it is
does it brew decent beer or wine? Also, has anyone tried a brew with lab
strains, maybe even yeast with stabley transfected plasmids? I wonder if there
would be any good plasmids to use to enhance a brew-- not that I plan to do
this, mind you.  Just musing, and procrastinating about running a gel.
