Brewery creates beer fermented with moon dust

moon dust beer

The Delaware brewery Dogfish Head has created a beer made with genuine lunar meteorites. Mostly made up of minerals and salts, the meteorites are crushed into dust before being steeped into the mixture during the fermentation process. The resulting brew is apparently akin to an earthy ale.

The brewery got the moon rock from ILC Dover, a company that aids NASA in designing and developing spacesuits. The final product of the brewing process is "Celest-jewel-ale," a 5-percent ABV ale created to celebrate September's fall equinox. Sold exclusively at the brewery's pub in Reheboth Beach, Delaware, it's a one-batch brew; once it sells out, the opportunity to taste the moon beer will be gone.
