We are not drinking Earl Grey Hot tonight. This is a celebration of 30 years of wonder, excellent story telling, escape, and brilliant space opera. Here’s to the finest science-fiction television show.
Beer: Star Trek: The Next Generation Symbiosis 30th Anniversary Ale
Beer Style: American Hoppy Wheat Ale
Brewery: Schmaltz Brewing Company
Serving Method: 12 oz bottle poured into shaker pint glass
Country of Origin: United States of America
Background: This is an exceptional beer to commemorate the first spin-off of Gene Roddenberry’s Heinlein inspired series: Star Trek. Thirty years ago the series began and the world would soon be remembering Jean-Luc Picard and company. I’ve been a fan of the show ever since I was in seventh grade. I can firmly say it is one of my favorites and it helped cement my love for science-fiction. Let’s explore this beer.
Taste & Aroma: This is a fine beer with a clear wheat aroma. The taste is one of spicy hop, biscuits, and a hint of crackers and the finish alongside a hop bite. Not bad.
Final Analysis: I doubt that I will try this on draft, but this is a fine easy-drinking ale that commemorates a wonderful show that I will one day share with my children.
