Space Beer

Send barley to space. Grow offspring on Earth. Add to brewing process. Brew. Sell!
Japanese brewery Sapporo Holdings said it would make beer using the third generation of barley grains that had spent five months on the International Space Station in 2006.

"We want to finish the beer by November. It will be the first space beer," Sapporo executive Junichi Ichikawa told reporters.

The company will have enough space grain to produce about 100 bottles of beer but has no immediate plan to make it a commercial venture, Sapporo officials said.

Cheap filler, I know. By Sapporo's logic, we could send gorgeous women into space, then bring them back to Earth and market them for dates, right? Call them space dates, and ask ridiculous auction prices for, well, girls who had been in space. Novelty, bitches!

Maybe we're onto something.
