Blog: Lucy BritnerBudweiser races to stock Mars bars

Lucy Britner | 16 March 2017

For those people looking to the Red Planet as shining utopia away from all things earth, look away now.

Anheuser-Busch InBev has announced plans to create a microgravity beer "for when we make it to Mars".

Speaking at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Texas earlier this month, the company said it intends for its Budweiser beer to be part of the journey in reaching the next frontier.

"Budweiser believes life in space deserves to be filled with the same enjoyments available here on earth, including beer," the firm said. 

"Budweiser can today be enjoyed in every corner of the world, but we now believe it is time for the King of Beers to set its sights on its next destination," said Ricardo Marques, VP, Budweiser. "When the dream of colonising Mars becomes a reality, Budweiser will be there to toast the next great step for mankind."

Maybe in 100 years, the news robots on just-drinks will be writing about the rise of craft brewers on Mars, which in turn will be referred to as planetary headwinds by analysts. 

It's the freakiest show.
