Felix Baumgartner jumped to earth from the edge of space and to that, we raise a glass. Literally.
Say “cheers!” to the new Space Age, with Beer in Space.
Hopped up by an Aussie-based “premium pub tour” company that offers worldwide booze’n’travel adventures, Beer in Space is, well, exactly what it sounds like. You reserve a spot on their sub-orbital craft, reach 330,000 feet, and pop the tab on a bottle of Vostok Space Beer — which is actually a real, science-tested thing.
Simply sign up to find out when the first Beer in Space flight starts booking. But beware: getting blotto past the Kármán Line doesn’t come cheap — the cost is $95,000, with cheaper options for lower-altitude/parabolic (aka “fake weightlessness”) beer flights.
Until then, you can book other pub tours through the company, including festival trips (Carnival in Rio, Oktoberfest in Germany) and a round-the-world-in-80-pubs crawl.
Which may not be a good time to be a lightweight.
