Japanese SPACE BEER!

7:00 AM on 12.06.2009 // Jon Snyder

Japan, always on the cutting edge of technology, has created yet another scientific innovation that's guaranteed to change the face of humanity: SPACE BEER! This new product, developed by Sapporo Breweries Limited, was brewed with hops cultivated in microgravity on the International Space Station. Tasters say the beer is delicious, and scientists say it demonstrates the viability of crop cultivation outside the Earth's biosphere. Space beer is paving the way for humanity's journey to the stars!

Unfortunately, only 1500 bottles of space beer are being made, meaning a taste of the final frontier will cost you a cool ¥10,000 ($110) per six-pack. If you feel like buying some, Sapporo is taking orders online. Otherwise, you'll have to make do with an ITN news report about the beverage, embedded below the jump.

Everything is better IN SPACE!
