The beer was a collaboration between the brewery and scientists at the Florida Museum of Natural History, who netted the butterflies and gently swabbed them for yeast before releasing them back into the forest.
Whew! They don't actually use the entire butterfly they just use the yeast from the butterfly.
I still wouldn't drink it.

"This beer brewed using molested butterflies" Would not really be a good sales slogan.

One possible name for the beer: Monarch Malted.
