Extra-terrestrial barley and Budweiser’s space mission

In March 2017, AB InBev-owned Budweiser joined the space race to become the first to send beer to Mars, embarking on a mission to produce a microgravity brew that can be enjoyed on the Red Planet.

Called Bud on Mars, the initiative was taken one step further when the brewer later sent 20 barley seeds to the International Space Station to be used in two experiments designed to see how the crop functions in space.

The barley spent about 30 days on board the ISS before being shipped back to earth for analysis. So far, no further plans have been revealed.
