Gliese 581 G
« on: September 30, 2010, 04:48:53 pm »
With the news that astronomers have for the first time found a planet outside of our solar system that may be able to support life, I think it's time to brew a beer.  They're calling it Goldilocks, since it's in the habitable zone around the star and is neither too warm nor too cold.  The star is Gliese 581, the planet is G.

So, since they're calling it Goldilocks I'm thinking a Belgian Strong Golden Ale.  Maybe with some spices, maybe not.  I'm tempted to throw some bugs in it as well, since it's all about various lifeforms :)

What do you guys think?  What would you brew?

Jeez that is a hard one. One with lots of "earthy" hops and rich malts.  Maybe a porter.
