Japanese brewery testing ‘space beer’
Japanese beer-lovers can anticipate an out-of-this-world brew: suds made with barley descended from grains that traveled in outer space. The “space beer,” to be test-brewed by Sapporo Breweries Ltd., will come in a pilot edition of 100 bottles to be ready in November, said company spokeswoman Momoko Matsumura.
The beer will be made with barley â€” to be harvested this weekend â€” descended from seeds that spent five months in 2006 aboard the International Space Station.
