Resistance to this Star Trek craft beer is futile

Drink me up, Scotty. In just a few months you'll be able to buy special Star Trek beer to celebrate the franchise's 50th anniversary as you settle down to watch the new series, Discovery.

Shmaltz Brewing, a New York-based company, has created two new beers that will be released on September 8, 1966 - the date the first ever Star Trek episode aired.

The first beer is 'The Trouble With Tribbles' (remember those cute little critters?) that is allegedly sweet with a tinge of toffee flavouring. 

"In keeping with the intergalactic theme, hopping is comprised of Comet, Polaris, Aurora and Admiral (Kirk) hops. This beer is only loosely filtered to clarity, in order to preserve the ambiguity of good and evil," said lead brewer at Shmaltz, Drew Schmidt. That's a thing. A thing he said. Probably while throwing some Vulcan salute. 

T'other beer is 'Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant', which has citrus accents and subtle notes of white wine. Exactly what you want in your beer. 

Despite how weird it all sounds, there's no way we're not trying it come September.
