The Trouble With Tribbles
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, Shmaltz Brewing Company has released a Golden Anniversary Ale called "The Trouble With Tribbles". The golden pale ale is made with 5 malts, 5 hops (Comet, Polaris, Aurora, Galaxy and Admiral) and is 5% ABV. The beer has a taste that is refreshing and a bit hoppy with no bitter aftertaste. The collaboration came through the Federation of Beers to develop a beer in honor of the 50th Anniversary.
Shmaltz Brewing Company is based in Clifton Park, N.Y. but distributes nationwide. Although the company is fairly small, they are known for the high quality of their beers and this beer is no exception. There are 6 batches of this beer, about 300 barrels or 600 kegs. This beer debuted to wonderful reviews at SDCC and the Star Trek Las Vegas. The next batch, titled "Voyage to the Northeast Quadrant" will debut at Mission New York in the fall.
