The announcement concerning the pathogens was made at a professional brewers
meeting, so I trust the source.  As to the conditions of beer not allowing
growth of m/o's, we all should know that O157:H7 is quite acid tolerant, and
bacteria adapt and evolve to exploit all types of environments.  As to the
pasteurization of beer, not all commercial beer is pasteurized.  Many types
contain live yeast in the bottle.
