Did you guys notice that Star Trek Into Darkness hit theaters last week? Have we been covering it here at all? You’d think I’d remember, but my memory has been kind of blinky recently. The blame can probably be put on all this beer I’ve been drinking. All this dull, generic, non-sci-fi beer.
Luckily, Canadian beer distributors Delancey Direct are working with Montreal’s Harvest Moon Brewing Company here to solve all of our officially licensed beer problems. They’re teaming up with CBS Studios to bring a variety of Star Trek brews to fans and imbibers alike. First up will be the “mind-melding good” Vulcan Ale, a 5.4 percent ABV Irish Red ale, much like what Smithwick’s or Killean’s is known for. In fact, it was the centennial celebration of province town Vulcan, Alberta that inspired the companies to create the boozy tie-in. Incidentally, Vulcan is slowly becoming the Trek-themed town that you should already be visiting.
