Ground Control by Marv Ellis and WE Tribe

Seven years after we started brewing in Oregon, we decided the sky was not the limit. One year, two rockets and countless lab hours later, we successfully launched a payload of brewer’s yeast into outer space with the help of rocket scientists. After a much awaited return to Earth, the mission of creating space beer is now complete. 

Written by Marv Ellis and WE Tribe and recorded at Ninkasi Studios, Ground Control is named after our first beer brewed with an ale yeast that traveled to space and back. Learn more about Ground Control and the Ninkasi Space Program by visiting
