This loving homage to Rick Moranis's character in Spaceballs is a Schwarzbier (or black lager) brewed with rye. The first time I heard this I imagined a dry, somewhat bitter beer. It's anything but. The mouthfeel and finish are both silky smooth, while the dark color promises and delivers a slightly roasted, coffee-like character. If the Schwartz can't be with you, this will do in a pinch.
