Axel-In-Charge: Unmasking the "Totally Awesome Hulk"
In a move that will undoubtedly lead to many head-splitting verses Klingon drinking songs at Star Trek conventions around the globe, CBS Consumer Products and the Federation of Beer have announced Klingon Warnog branded beer.
It’s the second official Star Trek beer, but the first to arrive in the United States; Vulcan Ale debuted last year, but it’s still only available in Canada.
Brewed by Tin Man Brewing Company in Evansville, Indiana, Klingon Warnog is a handcrafted Roggen Dunkel, “a bold beer suited for the harsh Klingon lifestyle.”
“Warnog’s aroma is predominantly mild banana and clove produced by the German wheat yeast, supported by subtle sweet malt character from the use of Munich malt,” CBS states. “The flavor draws heavily from the blending of the rye malt and traditional clove character, creating a very rich and unique flavor. The inclusion of wheat and caramel malts help to round out the mouthfeel of this beer, making this Dunkelweizen hearty enough to be called a Klingon Warnog.”
The brew will debut Tuesday at the Nightclub & Bar Show in Las Vegas, and ship later this year to the United States and Canada.
