“A small team of people gathered in the Nevada desert earlier this week to take another step toward answering one of mankind’s most pressing questions: What does beer taste like in space?
At least that’s one of the most pressing questions that comes up when a bunch of brewers get together with a bunch of amateur rocket builders. To find an answer,Ninkasi Brewing Company of Eugene, Oregon teamed up with the Civilian Space eXploration Team and Team Hybriddyne to launch some live yeast to space, bring it back to Earth, and then brew beer with it.”
THE SPACE BEER RACE. Oh the toasts we will raise to ourselves as a species with the spacefaring brews to come…while coasting past worlds yet undiscovered.
And if you haven’t heard, Bell’s Brewery is debuting solar system themed beers THIS FALL.
Beyond Earth Stephen Di Donato
"After recently finding old science fiction magazines dating back from the 1980’s, it reignited my childhood memories of my curiosity of our solar system and of limitless imagination. I began researching heavily on NASA missions and came to the realization that the late 1950’s to mid-1970’s were exciting times for new discoveries, for real photographic images of planets and for limitless possibilities. This gave me the incentive to start a personal project named Beyond Earth."
