One thing we do know is New Zealand have created a biofuel made from beer waste with the intention of fueling motor vehicles in the not-too-distant future.

Seriously, this is a real thing, we wouldn't lie to you about something as serious as beer fuel.

A New Zealand fuel company called Gull have teamed up with DB Breweries to create a cleaner biofuel using natural beer waste.

The fuel is created from the leftover yeast which is distilled to 95 per cent ethanol. Gull then refine the ethanol and blend it with petroleum making a petrol fuel which is better for the environment.

The first batch to hit the market should be ready in 6 weeks with DB Breweries promoting their beer as 'Drink DB export, save the entire world.'
