Dogfish Head Brewery celebrated the fall equinox with a celestial beer. On Sunday, the brewery released Celest-jewel-ale, a beer brewed with lunar meteorites.
The beer 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?)
Celest-jewel-ale is served exclusively at Dogfish Head’s brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, DE.
