A Maltier Kind of Moonshine

Celest-Jewel-Ale_Beer_DogfishHead_634x685Technically, it’s a beer. But since real moon dust is one of the ingredients, I’d like to think of it as a really bizarre take on moonshine.

Delaware-based brewery Dogfish Head developed the brew, appropriately named “Celest-jewel-ale,” to celebrate the autumnal equinox last month. The brewery said that the moon dust is made up mainly of minerals and salt, which help along the fermentation process and give it a unique, earthy complexity.

Cheers to Dogfish Head on making beer with the moon.
