This Space-Age Beer is Truly Out of This World

Bet it's tastier than astronaut ice cream.

Mmm, space beer.
Mmm, space beer.
Ninkasi Brewing Company

Unless you've got an extra quarter-million dollars or so burning a hole in your pocket, drinking this new beer from Oregon's Ninkasi Brewing Company is probably the closest you'll ever get to going into space. The limited-release Ground Control is "an Imperial Stout brewed with Oregon hazelnuts, star anise and cocoa nibs and fermented with an Ale yeast that survived a trip to space and back." Is craft beer the new Tang?
