Lowell’s crew showed up at Mother Road for an epic brew day, with respect paid to past achievements in astronomy while looking forward to new horizons. A true co-creation of recipe, design and starry-eyed inspiration, building community one pint at a time is enhanced by scientific breakthroughs for the masses.

“Lowell Observatory is very excited to once again partner with Mother Road on a specialty brew for the I Heart Pluto Festival,” said Lowell Observatory Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer Dr. Danielle Adams. “This is a delightful collaboration between two community-minded organizations that honors Flagstaff as the Home of Pluto.”
Lowell reps helped create a Mexican-style lager brewed with pilsner, Vienna and a dab of honey malt. There’s flaked maize for notes of masa, tortilla chips and a slight sweetness. Traditional German Tettnanger coupled with trending Lemondrop and Cascade hops provide a hint of lemon and spice to all the malt-focus. At 4.1-percent ABV and 21 IBUs, it’s ready to sip, share and slake your thirst for connection.
The limited-edition beer will be available only while supplies last. Mother Road and Lowell will debut the beer on February 12th at Mother Road’s Tap Room at 7 Mikes Pike and at the opening of the “I Heart Pluto Festival” at Lowell, from 6-8 pm the same evening.
