"Star Trek" fans, beer lovers, and Klingons alike - rejoice! The Federation of Beer, in partnership with the Tin Man Brewing Company, has announced a new addition to the universe of Trekkie-themed ales: the Klingon Warnog.
Like Ommegang Brewery did for its line of "Game of Thrones' themed beers, Tin Man Brewery put some serious love and expertise into creating a delicious ale for this latest release.
"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," the company states in a release. "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."
In a statement on Facebook, Tin Man Brewery expressed gratitude for the opportunity to craft a German Dunkelweizen worthy of the Warnog distinction.
"We just want to say thank you for all the Star Trek love we've been getting with the recent announcement of Warnog Roggen Dunkel. Tin Man Brewing was contracted by the Federation Of Beer to develop and brew Warnog, and we are exceedingly proud to brew beer for the Star Trek universe."
Klingon Warnog will ship throughout the U.S. and Canada later this year.
