Hey my nerd and beer lovers… Shmaltz Brewing Company is going to Comic-Con International with a unique Collector’s Edition release commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation. 2017 marks 30 years since Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered in September 1987, and Shmaltz Brewing kicks off the anniversary festivities during Comic-Con (July 20 – 23) with several tasting opportunities for its freshly brewed Star Trek Symbiosis®. CBS Studios has teamed up with Shmaltz for the only officially licensed Star Trek beers in the United States. IMPRESSIVE.
In 2016, Shmaltz debuted two critically acclaimed Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ales to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the iconic franchise, Star Trek. 2017 brings triple the excitement with the limited release of three Star Trek specialty beers rolling out throughout the year. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, the first extraterrestrial elixir of 2017 was Star Trek Klingon Imperial Porter® (7.3% ABV). Lifting off this week, Star Trek Symbiosis® transports itself in 4-packs to retail outlets in 35 states across the country and will be on draft at select bars.
So what kind of beer is this? The Star Trek Symbiosis® Hoppy Wheat Ale pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. A generous amount of hops provides flavors and aromas of ripe lemon and pleasant herbs, giving Symbiosis® a dry, crisp and clean mouthfeel. Symbiosis® is a limited-edition, smooth, easy-drinking ale with prominent wheat maltiness and distinct flavors and aromas of Warrior, Centennial, and Amarillo hops, making it the perfect refreshment for enjoying a Star Trek marathon with fellow Trekkies or at your next summer bottle share.
