Star Trek: The Next Generation 30th Anniversary Ale — Symbiosis
For over 10,000 years a symbiotic relationship has thrived between yeast and sugar, malts and hops, beer and beer lovers. Shmaltz’s latest Star Trek release celebrates this benevolent co-existence and pays homage to the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: Next Generation, and the episode, “Symbiosis”. In this episode, two different races from the same galaxy have seemingly found a way to peacefully coexist and work together for the betterment of all. However, we eventually learn that their relationship is based on the false promise of felicium, which is sold by the Brekkians to the Ornarans. This forces Captain Picard to make an excruciating choice: uphold the Prime Directive, or save an entire civilization from exploitation. In this 30th Anniversary Ale, the Shmaltz crew has upheld its Prime Directive to boldly unite hops, malts, yeast, and water in the pursuit of craft beer excellence. Share a bottle of this limited edition commemorative ale with your own federation. Make It So!
Star Trek Symbiosis® Hoppy Wheat Ale pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. A generous amount of hops provide 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.http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/shmaltz-brewing-celebrates-the-30th-anniversary-of-star-trek-the-next-generation-with-collectors-edition-beer-release-symbiosis/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Star-Trek-Logo-600x253.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Star-Trek-Logo-150x63.pngColumnLet's Drink
