It’s been almost 30 years since the premier of Star Trek the Next Generation September 1987 and to celebrate CBS Studios and Shmaltz Brewing Company is releasing Star TrekSymbiosis® Image result for star trek the next generation season 1

The beer made it’s debut at Comic-Con International and official launch at Star Trek Las Vegas convention but it will now be available to beer drinkers and Trekkies nationally in 4 packs at stores and select bars on draft in 35 states. In 2016, Shmaltz debuted two critically acclaimed Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ales to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the iconic franchise, Star Trek. 2017 brings triple the excitement with the limited release of three Star Trek specialty beers rolling out throughout the year. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, the first extraterrestrial elixir of 2017 was Star Trek Klingon Imperial Porter® (7.3% ABV). Star Trek Symbiosis® transports itself to retail outlets and bars within Shmaltz’s expansive distribution network. To find a Shmaltz distributor in your state, please visit: shmaltzbrewing.com/distributors
Star Trek: The Next Generation 30th Anniversary Ale — Symbiosis
For over 10,000 years a symbiotic relationship has thrived between yeast and sugar, malts and hops, beer and beer lovers. Shmaltz’s latest Star Trek release celebrates this benevolent co-existence and pays homage to the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: Next Generation, and the episode, “Symbiosis”. In this episode, two different races from the same galaxy have seemingly found a way to peacefully coexist and work together for the betterment of all. However, we eventually learn that their relationship is based on the false promise of felicium, which is sold by the Brekkians to the Ornarans. This forces Captain Picard to make an excruciating choice: uphold the Prime Directive, or save an entire civilization from exploitation. In this 30th Anniversary Ale, the Shmaltz crew has upheld its Prime Directive to boldly unite hops, malts, yeast, and water in the pursuit of craft beer excellence. Share a bottle of this limited edition commemorative ale with your own federation. Make It So!
Image result for star trek convention symbiosis beerStar Trek Symbiosis® Hoppy Wheat Ale pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. A generous amount of hops provide flavors and aromas of ripe lemon and pleasant herbs, giving Symbiosis® a dry, crisp and clean mouthfeel. Symbiosis® is a limited-edition, smooth, easy-drinking ale with prominent wheat maltiness and distinct flavors and aromas of Warrior, Centennial, and Amarillo hops, making it the perfect refreshment for enjoying a Star Trek marathon with fellow Trekkies or at your next summer bottle share.

About Shmaltz Brewing Company
Founder and owner Jeremy Cowan established Shmaltz Brewing in San Francisco in 1996.

I’ve decided that I deserve to buy 1 or 3 items this year at SDCC. After seeing what BBC America is bringing it looks like I’ll have to bring some extra cash for my Sherlock, Doctor Who and Orphan Black love!! I can get a Red Dalek (heck my name is Cherry) or wear my fandom with a t-shirt! So many great choices! Here are the items that I want to bring home ….

 I must admit to a major weakness for Daleks and Cybermen despite dreaming of being a Doctor or at the least a companion! I wonder if they will have anything with my personal favorite ‘Martha Jones’! Since it’s the final season of Orphan Black am thinking will pick up a Funko of one of the girls!

 

What would you pick up from the booth?

I’m very excited about HISTORY partnership with Comic-Con with the very first EVER external bag-check Knightfall‘s Guardians of the Gear at the Gaslamp MLK Promenade from July 20 – 23. ALL SDCC badge-holders will be able to store their bags for free next to the Holy Grail and under the guardianship of the Knights Templar. While you store your bags you can get a peak at the new History channel series Knightfall with personal photos of fans with the Knights Templar, a chance to see a snippet of the new show and a preview of the new mobile game Knightfall: Rivals on the Steam Platform™. They will also be distributing a prequel comic book from Titan Comics “Truth & Lies,” that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom – the Holy Grail.

“Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear” – July 20-23 – MLK Promenade

Knightfall

  • Thursday 7/20 11AM – 7PM

  • Friday 7/21 11AM – 7PM

  • Saturday 7/22 11AM – 7PM

  • Sunday 7/23 11AM – 5PM

KNIGHTFALL goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their complex relationship with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution, the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.

“Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear” – July 20-23 – MLK Promenade

HISTORY is setting the stage for SDCC attendees to discover its newest drama series “Knightfall” before it premieres by offering an essential service that is new to the convention – “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” The Holy Grail required protection of the Knights Templar, and SDCC attendees can count on that same protection for their own personal belongings by storing them in HISTORY’s “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” Located along the MLK Promenade in the Gaslamp Quarter, our knights will guard attendees swag while they explore the rest of Comic-Con.

Additionally at the Gaslamp activation location, attendees will be able to take a photo with the Knights Templar, watch a sneak peek of HISTORY’s newest drama series “Knightfall” and preview the Knightfall: Rivals video game on Steam Platform™, coming soon on mobile. Attendees will also be able to pick up a comic book from Titan Comics inspired by “Knightfall” entitled “Truth & Lies,” a prequel to the events in the forthcoming series that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom – the Holy Grail.

About “Knightfall”

“Knightfall” follows the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of destroying the Church itself. “Knightfall” goes deep into the inner sanctum of the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution on Friday the 13th—a date which became synonymous with bad luck—the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. “Knightfall” takes viewers inside the world to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.

“Knightfall” is an A+E Studios production in association with The Combine and Midnight Radio. Don Handfield and Richard Rayner serve as creators and executive producers, with Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Jeremy Renner also serving as executive producer. Dominic Minghella is executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers from Midnight Radio are Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg. Barry Jossen and Douglas Mackinnon serve as executive producers. The drama stars Tom Cullen (“Downton Abbey”), Pádraic Delaney (The Wind That Shakes the Barley, “The Tudors”), Simon Merrells(“Spartacus,” “Dominion”), Olivia Ross (War and Peace), Ed Stoppard (“The Crown”), Sabrina Bartlett (“DaVinci’s Demons”), Jim Carter (“Downton Abbey”) and Julian Ovenden (“Downton Abbey”).
