Guinness Beer is celebrating their 250th anniversary this year and will be sending one lucky winner on a trip to outer space.

The famed beer brand will send a contestant on a space travel to 68 miles above the Earth and will become the first non-professional astronaut. The Guinness winner will also have to undergo vigorous training at Spaceport America.

A spokesperson for Guinness said "Since 1759, Arthur Guinness and the Guinness brand have been behind some remarkable and hugely momentous achievements. To continue this legacy and as part of the 250 celebrations, Guinness is giving something back to supporters around the world."
