Space Beer!

From Wired Science comes news of the first beer made with grains descended from barley that spent five months in the Zvezda Service Module on the International Space Station.

Barley + Space = Space Beer!

"The very limited results, just 250 precious six-packs, will be sold through a lottery for 10,000 yen ($110) each. But only people living in Japan are eligible."


Cool beans for the lucky few who will get to taste Space Beer.

Ananda Girl: It's a bit too rich for my wallet, but I like the way you think.

hahaha... Too rich for my wallet too. How about a nice Black Butte Porter instead? Oh no... wait... maybe a nice margarita!

Ananda Girl: It is just scientific curiousity on my part to want to sample Space Beer. I wonder about the effects of weightlessness on flavor.

I'm up for your secondary choices too. Cheers!
