    Now You Can Drink Beer That Contains Real Moon Dust

    Perfect to numb the pain of not being an astronaut.

    A brewery in Delaware is offering a new beer called 'Celest-jewel-ale' that could legitimately be described as out of this world.

    Because it's brewed with real moon dust.

    Apparently they got the dust from a company up the road from them that makes space suits for NASA.

    Celest-jewel-ale is made with lunar meteorites that have been crushed into dust, then steeped like tea in a rich, malty Oktoberfest. These certified moon jewels are made up primarily of minerals and salts, helping the yeast-induced fermentation process and lending this traditional German style a subtle but complex earthiness. (Or is it mooniness?)

    Unfortunately, you'll have to go to their pub in Delaware to taste the ale. But you will get to drink it from a glass protected by real space suit material.
