007 Yeast?

Interesting article in today's NY Times about a start-up brewery coming out of Brooklyn. I was especially intrigued by the properties of the yeast.

If there’s a unifying character among the various Sixpoint beers, he said, it would arise from “the positive attitudes of the people who work here.” Or it could be the house strain of yeast, a fast-acting agent called 007 that quickly ferments the sugars in the malt, yielding potent brews, and then settles out easily when it has done its work, so there is no need to filter the beers for clarity.

Now, this is a product that I could use. I wonder if anyone could tell me of a commercially available strain of yeast with similar properties?
