Mankind has always looked up to the stars. Ninkasi Brewing Company does too, and wants to brew beer in space.
The brewery is teaming up with civilian rocket program CSXT, who successfully tested a rocket in 2004. On the 10th anniversary of that launch this month, Ninkasi plans to launch yeast into space. The test is is assess yeast viability miles above the earth.
If the yeast is viable, the brewery plans on using it for a very special release in the future.
The big picture for Ninkasi is to one day brew beer in space, the moon, or even Mars.
As of now, no distribution agreement has been signed for any other planets other than Earth.
