Now, take a sip of space beer brewed with lunar dust!

Washington, Oct 4 : A Delaware-based brewery is set to guarantee beer lovers a thoroughly spaced-out experience with their "Celest-jewel-ale."


Dogfish Head released their small-batch stellar brew in celebration of the fall equinox in September. But to make their ale extra-special, they acquired ground-up lunar material from meteorites.

The brewery wrote on its company website that Celest-jewel-ale is made with lunar meteorites that have been crushed into dust, then steeped like tea in a rich, malty Oktoberfest, Discovery reported.

They said that these certified moon jewels are made up primarily of minerals and salts, helping the yeast-induced fermentation process and lending this traditional German style a subtle but complex earthiness.

While being skeptical that lunar rock dust will have any significant impact on the brewing process, like the Hutcheon's Tremonte Vineyard's meteorite-infused Cabernet Sauvignon "Meteorito," just the simple inclusion of anything that has come from space will be enough to get their product into the limelight.

ILC Dover, a company that creates space suits for NASA, helped them get this unique and incredibly rare ingredient (the meteorites).

They also used German malts and hops, and fermented this beer with their house Doggie yeast, giving Celest-jewel-ale notes of doughy malt, toasted bread, subtle caramel and a light herbal bitterness.
