Official Star Trek 50th Anniversary BeerJuly 22nd, 2016
It is the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.With that, we have a new movie, a bunch of cool anniversary merchandise, and now we’re also getting a craft brew to celebrate. Shmaltz Brewing is celebrating the occasion with two collector’s edition Golden Anniversary Ales: The Trouble with Tribbles and Voyage to the Northeast Quadrant.
Here’s the Trouble with Tribbles description:
“Light Carastan malt gives some residual sweetness in the form of very light toffee. A dose of Munich adds a slight bready quality, and wheat malt lends to a slight crisp character. Mashing at a moderate temperature gives this beer a medium body. In keeping with the intergalactic theme, hopping is comprised of Comet, Polaris, Aurora and Admiral (Kirk) hops. This beer is only loosely filtered to clarity, in order to preserve the ambiguity of good and evil.”
The Voyage to the Northeast Quadrant sounds a bit more traditional:
“…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.”
The beers will debut at SDCC this weekend. Let us know if you try either one and what you think of them.
