Outer space is deep, man. Real deep. All sorts of mysterious, other-worldly, indescribable stuff happens out there. When you break it down and really think about it, we’re all part of this space idea as well. I mean, do you realize we’re floating in space? And who’s to say what else is out there? (well, besides scientists and astronomers and all those smarty-pants type folk... they do a pretty good job) Among the information that we do know is the concept of these ultra-high gravity black holes that eat stars. They just cruise around, light years away, and epicly consume stars and photons of light with a voracious appetite. These black holes are sometimes referred to as stargrazers.

Unrelated but still totally awesome, we named a beer of ours Stargrazer. Stargrazer is a crisp lager, lightly hopped with modern American hops. Stargrazer drinks clean, dry and refreshing, making for an all-around rewarding experience. Embrace the cosmos, we’re launching Stargrazer at the brewery on Friday.
