Star Trek & Shmaltz Brewing Company releases Star Trek 50th Anniversary limited edition beers

You would think Star Trek would have already released a beer since it has one of the most popular ‘drinks’ in sci-fi: Romulan Ale. But, finally, the Star Trek gods listened to your cries for some Star Trek-themed brews. Partnering up with Shamltz Brewing Company, CBS Consumer Products have announced, in celebration for the 50th Anniversary, two different beers with two different release dates.

At this year’s Comic-Con, Trekkies will have the opportunity to enjoy Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble with Tribbles at the premiere of Star Trek Beyond (IMAX, Embarcadero Marina Park on July 20th) and during the convention (July 21-24). It will also be available in retail locations in San Diego.

Not going to Comic-Con? Well, if you’re heading to the Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas, they are bringing the beer there as well.

During the fall, Shmaltz will bring their second Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: Voyage to the Northeast Quadrant to Mission New York (September 2-4).

Here are some details on the brews:

Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles (5 Malts, 5 Hops, 5% ABV) In the original Star Trek series episode “The Trouble with Tribbles,” the U.S.S. Enterprise is called to protect a shipment of a genetically engineered four-lobe grain that is a hybrid of wheat and rye, called quadrotriticale. Since the year 2269 is still about 250 years in the future, Quadritriticale has yet to be conceived. Thus, Shmaltz brews with triticale for Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles.

Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant (5 Malts, 5 Hops, 5% ABV) Recipe designed by 2nd Shift Supervising Brewer Ivan Dedek, Shmaltz’s second offering for Star Trek 50 harnesses a crisp, clean malt character showcased by the use of light Munich malts and brewer’s maze. The aroma is accented by fresh citrus fruits such as lemon and lime with subtle notes of white wine. The crisp malts and fruity aromas are elevated by maintaining a mild bitterness allowing each selected ingredient to offer its individual qualities without being overshadowed by any single ingredient. With 5 malts, 5 hops and 5% ABV, Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant is the perfect brew for any beer lover to toast the 50th Anniversary of such an iconic piece of popular culture.
