Trekkie hipsters around the world are rejoicing over a new craft beer that's "boldly going where no [craft beer] has gone before." (Sorry.) I present...Klingon Warnog, a "hand-crafted Roggen Dunkel." Tin Man Brewing Co., located in Evansville, IN claims its new brew is "a bold beer suited for the harsh Klingon lifestyle." Though, I'm pretty sure what they mean is: "trendy beer suited for the heavily-latexed Trekkie Conventioneer."
Here's the totally not-pretentious press release from Tin Man Brewing Co.:
This singular beer incorporates rye malt into a modern Dunkelweizen grain bill, creating a flavor profile that is both familiar and unique. 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 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.
Here's my take:
The beer is going to be "officially" announced at Las Vegas' Nightclub & Bar Show tomorrow.
