The suds aren't all in the glass

Beer lovers often complain they can't get enough of their favorite quaff. A Chicago microbrewery has taken a big step toward satisfying that thirst.

The Half Acre Beer Company is selling a soap at its brewery store that lists beer as a major ingredient. It better be, for $6 a bar.

The soap was invented by Jim Gregory, 22, a college student who says "macronutrients" in the beer are good for the skin and hair.

Gregory, whose company is called Grandma Gee's, said the soap also contains lavender, bergamot and menthol. None of that beery smell.
