After Neil DeGrasse Tyson paid a visit to Asheville, North Carolina, the Asheville Brewing Company decided to honor the celebrity astrophysicist's appearance with a new brew called 'Bier LemonGrass Tyson.' DeGrasse Tyson is better known for his comments about the cosmos than his taste for suds, but the brewery did some research and unearthed statements about the scientist's beer tastes before crafting a brew just for him.

The intrepid brewers at Asheville Brewing Company found a video of DeGrasse Tyson discussing his alcohol preferences, noting that he prefers Belgian weiss beer and local options when possible. Satisfying that to a tee, Bier LemonGrass Tyson is an American-style Belgian wit beer brewed with Galaxy hops, lemongrass, sweet orange peel, and coriander -- everything the man himself appreciates in a malted beverage.
