Great Lakes Brewing Co. has a new out-of-this-world beer coming: Spacewalker American Belgo. It's an 8.2 percent Belgian-style ale. Beer writer Robert Massie first posted the label yesterday (May 1) on Twitter and Facebook.
Great Lakes spokeswoman Marissa DeSantis said it's a limited edition brew set for release this year. But other details will be released later, she said.
As with all Great Lakes beers, Spacewalker comes with a story. The label says: "Perhaps one of space's greatest mysteries is why so many of its explorers hail from Ohio. In honor of the 25 courageous astronauts who have called Ohio their terrestrial home, and the nine Ohio men and women who've logged hours walking in space, we present this adventurous brew. Our American Belgo is a trans-continental journey combining bold American hops, candy-sweet Belgian yeast, and a complex blend of malts to boldly go where few beers have gone before."
