Back in May I reported that Sapporo, the Japanese brewer, was planning a test beer made from barley grown in space.
Now I can report it is a fait accompli.
Sapporo today announced it has produced the world's first "space beer," using grain grown in a Russian laboratory on board the International Space Station.
The company said it has brewed just 100 litres, none of which will be put up for sale. Instead, 30 people will be chosen by lottery to sample a few millilitres each of the beer in January. The rest will be used for research.
