    This is kind of annoying, how many moon rocks are out there? Like, it seems a waste.

    But yes, yes I would drink it.

    That didn't work out well for Cave Johnson.

    It probably would taste like dirt.

    To be fair, it's basically a Marzen brewed with moon dirt, so it'll mostly taste like beer. The Dogfish Head website says there are "earthy flavors" to it, but I doubt it's overpowering.

    Although I better damn well taste it or else it would be a complete waste of time ;)

    About 948.5 pounds that we've retrieved from the Moon or excavated on Earth, with more on Earth to be found.

    As far as the beer goes, I'd try it, but only on a soundstage. ;)

    Because saying it has "moony flavors" sounds really dumb.

    I've seen little specks of moon for sale in a museum shop for ton of money. I wonder how expensive the beer will be?

    Sounds like luna-cy.

    I would suggest "Moon Rocks" by Talking Heads as musical accompaniment:

    "I got mass communication
    I'm a human corporation
    I ate a rock from the moon"​

    Close enough.

    I loathe beer, so I'd definitely not drink it. Plus: we already destroyed one planet almost completely. It'd be a shame to gradually destroy a moon for something as superfluous as booze. (It's bad enough that we left rather a lot of junk up there already)

    The moon is too pretty to drink.

    I work in a brewery. I love beer. Of course I'd try it.

    Sure, why not. I occasionally drink gimmicky bottled water. I don't see how this is any weirder than black water.

    :lol:

    I hear it goes great with a Mississippi moon and some funky Dixieland. ;)

    If you poured this stuff on the ground, would it become Moon River?
