Chris Carberry, author of “ Alcohol in Space : Past, Present and Future,” said that alcohol -related space research has broad implications.

The idea of alcohol in space may seem outlandish, but a number of companies and organizations are ready to tap into some new opportunities.

On Dec. 5, SpaceX launched a 3-ton shipment to the International Space Station containing a miniature of a brewery's malt house. The barley grains were sent into space for a beer-malting experiment by Anheuser-Busch. It's the latest in a series of Budweiser experiments to explore how barley germination is affected by weightlessness.

Spilling beer during some drunken orbital hijinks could also risk damaging equipment. Then there is the issue of responsibility. We don’t allow car drivers or jet pilots to be drunk and in charge of their vehicles, so it is hardly surprising the same rules apply to astronauts inside a 0 billion space

In December 2018, for example, Budweiser sent an experiment to the orbiting space lab to analyze strains of barley seeds as they go through rapid hydration, germination and drying associated with malting barley. “Results from this research could help the company develop new malt barley varieties that are more tolerant to extreme stress environments and could also provide valuable insight for the general agricultural community,” explained the ISS U.S. National Laboratory, in a statement released at the time.

Fox News has reached out to Anheuser-Busch with a request for comment on this story.

The red Bordeaux will age there for a year before returning to Earth. Researchers will study how weightlessness and space radiation affect the aging process. The goal is to develop new flavors and properties for the food industry.

In 2015, Japanese beverage giant Suntory announced plans to send six samples of whiskey and other alcoholic beverages to the ISS, but the company did not have an update on the experiment when asked by Fox News.

Chris Carberry, author of “Alcohol in Space: Past, Present and Future,” said that alcohol-related space research has broad implications. Anheuser-Busch’s experiments with barley, for example, could have a direct effect on agriculture in space, according to Carberry.

“You’re getting a completely different industry that is trying to solve problems that we have to solve before we have a sustainable presence on the Moon or Mars,” Carberry told Fox News. “[In space] we need to create our own food fast.”

A number of Aussie craft beer companies have been snapped up by big corporates. Here's who belongs to who.

  A number of Aussie craft beer companies have been snapped up by big corporates. Here's who belongs to who. The news last week that Mick Fanning-backed craft beer label Balter Brewing had been scooped up by Carlton and United Brewers (CUB) probably came as little surprise for the truly committed froth lords out there. That's because it has been something of a trend in recent years. The routine plays out the same way: A local label picks up steam, gets traction in the wider market, and then – wham! – it gets swept up by one of the big conglomerates which dominate booze distribution in Australia.There are plainly great reasons why an independent brewer might want to be acquired – and it isn't just the money.

Couple that with a space renaissance, given the large amount of wealth to be made from space services, capabilities and activities. For example, great entrepreneurs such as Jeff Bezos (Blue Origin and Amazon) and Elon Musk (SpaceX and Tesla) are only a few leading the way in making access to

But what about consuming alcohol in space? In his book, Carberry explains that, while astronauts and cosmonauts are prohibited from imbibing in orbit, there are stories of Russian cosmonauts bringing cognac to the former Mir space station and to the ISS. On occasion, this cognac is said to have been shared with astronauts. “It turned into this bonding in space – floating orbs of cognac, just a little shot,” he said. “I think it has played an interesting diplomatic role.”

As for the U.S. space program, there have been famous instances of alcohol in orbit. Miniature bottles of brandy, for example, traveled to space on the Apollo 8 mission in December 1968 but remained unopened. The following year, Apollo 11 Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin took communion, including wine, on the lunar surface.

In his book, Carberry discusses the role of  alcohol, and looks to the future, with a possible return to the Moon and manned missions to Mars on the horizon. “Alcohol has played a pivotal role, good and bad, in society,” he said, noting its impact on agriculture, diplomacy and human relations.

So what would a hangover in space feel like? Carberry says that it is still unknown. “We do not know how [alcohol] would metabolize in space,” he said.

And, additionally, he points out that in orbit, “nobody has ever become inebriated."
