Space beer! - Mark's Journal
Space beer!
The world of beer just got a whole lot bigger: Sapporo Breweries announced plans to brew suds from barley grains that traveled in outer space. The Japanese beermaker says they're harvesting the grains this weekend, and a pilot edition of 100 beers will be ready in November.

The grains were in space as part of a science experiment to test the adaptability of plants to environmental changes and the impact from stresses such as space travel.

A colleague recently told me of having had Maccabee Beer in Paris, to which I responded, "Is this the beer to have when you're holed up in a fortress?"
