Boldly going where no brewer has gone before, Schmaltz Brewing Company is releasing two beers that celebrate the 50th anniversary of the seminal science fiction television program Star Trek. Both beers are billed as golden ales, but each has its own characteristics.
The first beer, The Trouble with Tribbles – named for the beloved episode – features light Carastan malt for some light toffee sweetness and Munich malt for a slight bready quality. Finally, wheat malt is added to impart a crisp character. In keeping with the intergalactic theme, hopping is comprised of Comet, Polaris, Aurora and Admiral (Kirk) hops.
The second beer called Voyage to the Northeast Quadrant utilizes Munich malt and brewer’s maize the brew exhibits aromas of fresh citrus fruits and subtle notes of white wine. In all, the beer features five malts, five hops and clocks in at 5% ABV.
Both beers will be available at the premiere of the new movie, Star Trek Beyond in Los Angeles and at the 50th Anniversary Star Trek convention. Further distribution information was not available.
