What is the Tutankhamun Ale?

The Tutankhamun Ale is one of the most expensive beers in the world as it’s prepared according to the recipe recovered by a group of University of Cambridge archaeologists in Queen Nefertiti’s Temple of the Sun in Egypt.

What is the world’s first ‘Space Beer?’

Beer in space? You read right! In 2006, Japanese and Russian scientists tested how well barley could grow in space and rocketed barley seeds to the International Space Station and planted them aboard the Zvezda Service Module. After spending five months in orbit, the barley was brought back to earth, where Japanese brewer Sapporo fermented it into the world’s first space beer. A six-pack costs $110.
