Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles

(5 Malts, 5 Hops, 5% ABV)

In the original Star Trek series episode “The Trouble with Tribbles,” the U.S.S. Enterprise is called to protect a shipment of a genetically engineered four-lobe grain that is a hybrid of wheat and rye, called quadrotriticale. Since the year 2269 is still about 250 years in the future, Quadritriticale has yet to be conceived. Thus, Shmaltz brews with triticale for Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles.

Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant

(5 Malts, 5 Hops, 5% ABV)

Recipe designed by 2nd Shift Supervising Brewer Ivan Dedek, Shmaltz’s second offering for Star Trek 50 harnesses a crisp, clean malt character showcased by the use of light Munich malts and brewer’s maize. 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. With 5 malts, 5 hops and 5% ABV, Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant is the perfect brew for any beer lover to toast the 50th Anniversary of such an iconic piece of popular culture.
