Ninkasi Space Program: The Mission to Make Space Beer

Ninkasi Space Program: The Mission to Make Space Beer

Eugene, Oregon’s Ninkasi Brewing Company has boldly gone where no brewery has gone before. They launched yeast into space hoping it would survive the g-force leaving Earth’s atmosphere, the cold weightlessness of space and the hot and hard re-entry to Earth—all in the name of science (that is, making beer with it). Learn about the trials and tribulations of the Ninkasi Space Program and taste the resulting out-of-this-world beer, Ground Control Imperial Stout, along with other offerings.
