Out of this World! Beer brewed with barley from space station

Japanese beer maker Sapporo on Thursday unveiled a new brew that may be out of this world.

The new "Space Beer" is brewed with barley grown aboard the International Space Station.

A researcher said the barley was taken into space and it didn't change in size, color or protein levels.

The experiment revealed fine products can be grown in space.

Six packs of the brew will be sold to 250 people chosen by lottery and they will have to pay a stratospheric price $115.00 for a six pack.

All proceeds will be donated to an educational science charity.
