Dogfish Head Makes Beer out of Meteorites

Pixie dust, unicorn tears rumored to be among future ingredients.

Makes you thirsty, doesn’t it?

CBS Philly reports on Celest-jewel-ale, a small-batch brew from Dogfish Head Brewery, made out of … moon dust. “To be exact, Celest-jewel-ale contains crushed lunar meteorites that have been made into dust then steeped ‘like tea in a rich, malty Oktoberfest’ yielding a beer with “subtle but complex earthiness” and hints of toasted bread, caramel and herbs.” The downside is that drinking the stuff will turn you into an alien who feasts upon the innards of humans, but … it’s really good beer! In any case, it’s only available at Dogfish Head’s own brewpub in Delaware.
