Would You Drink Beer Brewed on Mars?

Budweiser recently announced plans to send barley seeds, one of the key ingredients in beer, to space to determine if it’s possible to make and drink beer on Mars. But Americans aren’t particularly anxious for a taste of Martian brew.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 11% of American Adults say they are more likely to buy a beer that is brewed on Mars. Thirty-three percent (33%) say they’re less likely to buy a space beer, while 45% say the beer’s origin would have no impact on their beer-buying decision. Another 11% are not sure.
