Ever wonder what’d it be like in the future to hit up a bar on the other side of the galaxy, have some moon beer and maybe even get into a drunken fight with a 8-foot-tall space slug? Well, maybe you can have one out of three.
In celebration of the fall equinox, The Dogfish Head Brewery is going out of this world to make a special kind of ale that can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. The Delaware-based company created what they proudly call their Celest-Jewel-Ale, which is made from lunar meteorites. The meteorites were first crushed into dust and steeped like tea in an Oktoberfest beverage.
The moon dust is made mostly of minerals and salts, which help the fermentation process, ironically adding a more earthiness texture to the drink. Dogfish acquired the lunar meteorites via ILC, a design and development company that makes spacesuits for NASA.
Celest-Jewel-Ale, at 5% ABV and 25 IBUs, is definitely a limited time brew at Dogfish and only available at Dogfish Head’s pub in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Once it’s gone, there’s literally nothing in this world that would taste the same.
