Last night, at the Nightclub & Bar show in Las Vegas, the Tin Man Brewing Company of Indiana and the Federation of Beer, a Canadian company, debuted “Klingon Warnog”, a new craft beer in its line of Star Trek-themed beers. The beer, named after a Klingon ale seen on TNG and DS9, is made with German wheat yeast, Munich malt, and rye, wheat and caramel malts.
According to the press release,
“The flavor draws heavily from the blending of the rye malt and traditional clove character, creating a very rich and unique flavor, a bold beer suited for the harsh Klingon lifestyle.”
It will have notes of banana, clove, and caramel and be 5.5% alcohol by volume.
This isn’t the Federation of Beer’s first foray into adult Star Trek beverages. Last year, the company released “Vulcan Ale”, an Irish Red ale (to match Vulcan’s red surface, of course) billed as “a logical choice for a palate pleasing libation”. The ale is currently only available in Canada but there are plans to have it available in the states soon. The company also has plans to brew a Romulan Ale next year.
We here at TrekMovie aren’t sure what all the fuss is about. After all, there is only one drink that truly reaches the heart of all true warriors…
