Star Trek Golden Anniversary Beer now available

Tomorrow is the Golden Anniversary of Star Trek. The first episode aired 50 years ago tomorrow on September 8, 1966. Star Trek has grown to become the #4 all-time movie franchise broadcasting in over 200 countries and grossing $2.4 billion all-time sales at the box office. CBS Studios has teamed up with Shmaltz Brewing to create the only officially licensed Star Trek anniversary beer in the United States.

Earlier this year Star Trek and Shmaltz Brewing teamed up to create a 50th anniversary golden ale called The Trouble with Tribbles.

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.
