What I’m talking about
by Aiyonna White, Contributor
I interviewed exhibitors and artists with unique and interesting products at Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con. These products range from art prints to comic books, to cosplay props. Take a look! (more…)
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®
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/
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!
Star 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. The first 100 cases of He’brew Beer® were hand-bottled and delivered throughout the Bay Area from the back of his Grandmother’s Volvo. Shmaltz Brewing now sells He’brew Beer across 35 states, through 40 wholesalers and in nearly 5,000 retailers.
After 17 years of being an outspoken cheerleader for contract brewing, Cowan and staff opened their own New York State production brewery in 2013 in Clifton Park, 10 minutes north of Albany. Shmaltz’s home boasts a 50-barrel brewhouse with 30,000 barrels of annual capacity and packages a diverse and tasty variety of core and seasonal favorites in 12 and 22-ounce bottles and kegs. The Shmaltz Tasting Room is open five days a week (Wed-Sun) and offers tours, barrel-aged previews, beer-to-go, and special releases.
RateBeer.com ranked Shmaltz as one of the “Top 100 Brewers in the World” in 2013, and the brewery brought home 10 gold and 6 silver medals from the World Beer Championships in the past several years.

JustFab & Betches are giving sassy fashion friends a great valentines gift with their newest collaboration. It’s the fourth time they’ve created a capsule collection for women of all sizes who want style with surprising details.
They have looks for any mood in the season must have color Rose Gold <scream>. I am simply mad over the jacket (yes I’m repeating myself but DAMN it’ cute) and the origami slip on tennis shoes in gray are my new summer neutral to wear on casual weekend outings The satchel has the perfect amount of metallic sheen to go from office to drinks with my friends <sigh> but I just can’t help daydream about the silver tassle loafer they bring me back to my Catholic School Girl days but all we had was Navy, Black & Burgandy! I want to buy these & the olive bag and team them up with a cute modern plaid skirt, white blouse and sweater for a little schoolgirl style!
I’d love to wear the camouflage jacket with a pair of white jeans & t-shirt and those black boots when I’m feeling like a bad ass feminist. The soft with tough would be perfect for a casual day at work, running errands or just protesting injustice! and YES I’d
grab the rose gold satchel cause this is how THIS woman likes to dress!

We get to play the game as we get to know Javier, his family and Clementine all trying to survive the Zombie scourge plaguing the world. As they explore the Walking Dead Universe they will get to meet new and old characters from Comic Books/TV. One familiar face will be Jesus and a few others that you have to wait to see when the games are released! As they leave the ‘safety’ of their home and see what the ‘New Frontier’ means .. I’m going out on a limb and say ZOMBIES <scream>
The new series will have episodes and the first two will premier digitally worldwide starting Tuesday, December 20th on PC from the Telltale Online Store, Steam and other digital distribution services. Also on Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and on the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4. The episode will be available the same day for compatible iOS devices via the App Store and for compatible Android-based devices via Google Play.

When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to protect his family, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.
