Default Fruit Flies in Your Beer

With great fruit fly production comes many opportunities for escape. While loose flightless flies normally cause little issue, yesterday I found one drowned in my beer. I chose to drink it rather than waste precious malty beverage.
So I thought this might make for a fun Poll. Has this happened to you? Hypothetically, if it did, how would you react?
To me, it's just a flavorless additive with a tiny bit of protein and, assuming my husbandry is up to snuff, posing no risk of pathogens.
So pipe in on this essentially meaningless question...

If I'm certain that the fly escaped while making new cultures in the kitchen, I'll scoop it out and continue with the beverage, but if there's a good chance that the bug came from a frog tank, I dump the beer like pigswill.
Woodswalker, Ravage and illucam like this.

Point taken.

After convincing my other half that she wouldn't have to deal with creepy crawlies around the house as a result of my getting frogs, that springtails and isopods don't enjoy the conditions of our living space, she found a fruit fly crawling around in her bra on day one. Whoops.
Never had one in my beer though - thankfully!

I have a cat. He just sits and waits for the flies to escape. Entertainment for a little while until he squishes them.
