Carl Sagan "Blue Dot" beer

Cheers to the planet

For this Earth Day, a beer inspired by Carl Sagan's 'Pale Blue Dot':

...Hair of the Dog owner and brewer Alan Sprints is “trying to get people to think globally and drink locally,” with his Earth Day public sale at the brewery. The sale celebrates the first release of Blue Dot each spring. Blue Dot, an imperial IPA made with 98 percent organic ingredients, was named for Carl Sagan’s description of this planet, “in order to bring more awareness to the Earth,” Sprints says...

"IPA" stands for 'India Pale Ale', a style of English ale with an assertive addition of hops.
