STAR TREK IS GETTING AN OFFICIAL BEER FOR ITS 50TH ANNIVERSARY

Are you ready to boldly drink how no man has drunk before? No, I’m not talking about breaking out the funnel. In honor of the sci-fi franchise’s 50th anniversary, Star Trek is getting an officially licensed beer this month courtesy of Shmaltz Brewing.

Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles will be debuting next week, very fittingly, at Comic-Con in San Diego where it will first be served, even more fittingly, at the premiere of the latest entry in the Star Trek movie franchise, Star Trek Beyond, on July 20. From there, the “Collector’s Edition” brew will also be available at the San Diego Convention Center as well as select retail locations around the area.

For those Trekkies whose love of the series isn’t so intense that they’re willing to travel to San Diego to get a Star Trek-themed beer… First, you call yourself a Trekkie?! But second, the limited edition beer will also be available at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas during the Star Trek Las Vegas convention from August 3 to 7.
