Good news! If the world ends, you’re beer won’t.
Back in 1955, there was a series of nuclear tests dubbed Operation Teapot. Part of this series involved nuking packaged foods and seeing how they stand up. Here’s what they found out:
Buds were located in varying distances from the blast sites—the nearest were just 1,000 feet away and the furthest were a mile away. After sustaining blasts of 20-30 kilotons, the brews were found to be a-okay. Or rather drinkable for “emergency use” and safe “in the short term.” The tests also found the taste was totally not even skunked.
So there you have it. Stock up your bomb shelter with beer – cause god knows you’re going to need a drink after the end of the world.
