Klingon Warnog, a beer that aims to capture the warrior essence of the Klingon culture will be available to Star Trek fans in the US from the end of this month.
The new beer – a Danish Roggen Dunkelweiss – from the Federation of Beer, who also produce Vulcan Ale, will go on sale first in select liquor stores and bars across Indiana and Washington State.
The beer is being produced under license by CBS Consumer Products and produced in collaboration with Tin Man Brewing Company, and will be introduced to consumers through a series of premier launch parties under the banner First Contact: Klingon Warnog over the next year.
These events will kick off with launch parties in Evansville and Indianapolis from 26th July, where everyone is almost certain to speaking some form of Klingon by the end of the night…
The Federation Of Beer began in the small town of Vulcan, Alta.,Canada, population 1,836 (the official Star Trek capital of Canada). The townspeople hold an annual Star Trek convention — Spock Days— celebrating the fact the character (played by actor Leonard Nimoy) was born on the far off planet of Vulcan. At the event in 2012, Dr.Richard Weger ran into his now-partners in the Federation, Calgarians Paul Carreau, a retired Canadian military veteran, and Vern Raincock, a beer marketer for Delancey Direct Incorporated (importer of craft beer into Western Canada). All three were drinking beer, talking about Star Trek (being avid fans of the franchise) and thought the TV programme deserved a good ale.
Their Season One Episode One beer “Vulcan Ale” was first released in Canada just as Star Trek Into Darkness debuted in cinemas..
