Pack has the following text:
“From the dawn of civilisation people have brewed beer
and wherever people went beer followed. In the middle ages beer helped monks survive long periods of
fasting. Sailors drank
beer (with a splash of lime) to stave off scurvy. During the age of exploration, distances
travelled necessitated brewers to get creative, making beer recipes to last the voyages that would bring this
great beverage to the world!
To continue this great tradition we have created a beer for another momentous voyage. A beer specifically
designed for the next frontier of space exploration. Space engineers from Saber Astronautics Australia have
teamed with 4 Pines in our own space rac
e; to take this 4 Pines Stout which tastes fantastic on Earth and Adapt
it for space to produce the world’s first space beer.
Enjoy! (No matter where on Earth or in space you are)”
