Budweiser recently announced plans to send barley seeds to space, one of the key ingredients in beer. The company wants to determine if it’s possible to make and drink beer on Mars.

Barley samples are to be flown to the International Space Station later this month.

But a new poll indicates that Americans aren’t particularly anxious for a taste of Martian brew.

Survey findings

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds:

  • 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.

“Sampling” error?

The national survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on November 26-27, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
