This refers to anything involving yeast: bread, Marmite and Vegemite, beer (fermented grain), grain whiskey -- in short, NOTHING involving any of the Five Grains: oat, barley, spelt, rye, or wheat, unless it is sh'murah (watched, guarded) from the moment of harvest to the moment of baking, so that one knows for certain that there has been no moisture introduced to the grain.

My lord husband was a member of a brewer's email list.  Although he
was not Jewish, he knew enough to laugh heartily when someone asked,
"How come I see all kinds of products marked Kosher-for-Passover, like
Coke, but never beer?"
