The newest small-batch beer from Dogfish Head, released Sunday to celebrate the fall equinox, is out of this world.

Celest-jewel-ale is made with lunar meteorites that have been crushed into dust, then steeped like tea in a rich, malty Oktoberfest. These certified moon jewels are made up primarily of minerals and salts, helping the yeast-induced fermentation process and lending this traditional German style a subtle but complex earthiness. (Or is it mooniness?)

Our friends up the road at ILC Dover, a company that creates space suits for NASA, helped us get this unique and incredibly rare ingredient. We also used German malts and hops, and fermented this beer with our house Doggie yeast, giving Celest-jewel-ale notes of doughy malt, toasted bread, subtle caramel and a light herbal bitterness.

I was, and continue to be, a craft beer geek. I travel through time and space to experience the greatest that fermented beverages have to offer. I am good. I know them. I can critique them. And I love them. They offer an insight into the minds of geniuses. But I know nothing.

Back in 1994, when Sam Calagione was working on a business plan for a nontraditional brewery, one of the homebrew recipes he tested was a breakfast-themed stout. A few months later, Chicory Stout – brewed with organic Mexican coffee, licorice root and chicory – helped launch Dogfish on our off-centered path. Now, 20 years later, the itch for a breakfast beer is there again, and we’re going big.
