Welcome to the future of beer drinking. Sapporo’s new Space Barley beer is made from barley that has descended directly from seeds that were aboard the International Space Station for five months back in 2006.
The Japanese brewer has produced only 250 six-packs of Space Barley beer and are making them available to customers picked at random who register at the Sapporo website (yes, the website is in Japanese, sorry).
Oh sure, space beer is cool and all, but it’s not cheap. A six-pack costs $110. But at least your money will go towards a good cause – profits are being donated to Okayama University to promote space science research.
