Team to Launch Keg Rocket

Kegs in SpacePORTLAND, Ore. — A group of Portland beer lovers have found a unique way to chill their suds.

The group, called “Team Numb” is getting ready to launch their first ever, two stage rocket filled with kegs of beer. The team has been building and launching high powered rockets for over 15 years.

So far, they’ve successfully launched two keg ships. One in 2008 and another in 2012. Both reached heights of about six thousand feet; and after both flights, the team tapped the kegs, enjoying their “rocket beer.”

Team Numb hopes to launch the new project in September.
