A cattle ranch in Texas swears by a secret ingredient that makes its beef juicer: Beer.

Texas T Kobe ranch in Wallis pours beer into the hay its cows eat. The ranch says the yeast in the double IPA helps promote digestion and improves the flavor and texture of the herd’s meat.

The beer comes from a partnership with a local award-winning brewer, Saint Arnold Brewing Co.

Texas T follows the tradition of Kobe-style beef, a method of herding developed in Japan that raises hormone-free, Wagyu breed cattle. It’s one of the most expensive types of beef and is often considered a delicacy — it can cost up to $100 a pound. Japanese ranchers would often massage their cows or feed them beer to reach the ideal flavor.
