Star Trek anniversary beer on the way from Shmaltz Brewing

The craft brewery company has created Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale – The Trouble With Tribbles to mark the franchise’s 50th anniversary.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek this year, craft brewery company Shmaltz Brewing is releasing an official Star Trek beer.

Commissioned by CBS to mark the anniversary, Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale - The Trouble With Tribbles will launch at San Diego Comic-Con later this month.

In a blog post, Shmaltz Brewing, said: “ In keeping with the intergalactic theme, hopping will be comprised of Comet, Galaxy, Polaris, Aurora and Admiral (Kirk) hops.

“Admiral and Comet will be used in the boil. Galaxy, Polaris and Aurora will be used as flavor hops contributing floral, mint, pine and tropical fruit flavours.”

The beer will also be available at select stores later this year and at the Star Trek Las Vegas Convention in August.
